BBC ONE Friday 12 September 2008
Friday 12 September
1.45-2.15pm BBC ONE


It's the evening of George's surprise 40th birthday party, as the Midlands-based medical drama continues. As it is a fancy dress party, everyone is getting ready in their costumes.


Jimmi and Eva don't make it to the party because a 15-year-old with a crush on Jimmi claims to have lost her puppy. All dressed up in their party clothes, they spend the evening trying to help her find it until Eva gets the girl to admit she's lying.


Before he reaches the party, Daniel receives a call from the police telling him he will not be charged over his involvement with Kay. Joe is still very annoyed about Daniel's recent behaviour, but a relieved Daniel heads off to the party promising to be back at 10.30pm to talk. When he tries to sneak in later than promised, Joe is waiting for him and tells Daniel exactly what he thinks of him. Joe tells him that he has had enough, he is going to Boston and Daniel is moving out!


Meanwhile, at the party, Mal takes the opportunity to publicly propose to a flabbergasted Julia.


George is played by Stirling Gallacher, Jimmi by Adrian Lewis Morgan, Eva by Angela Lonsdale, Daniel by Matthew Chambers, Joe by Stephen Boxer and Julia by Diane Keen. Mal is played by special guest star Ray Fearon.

Legends – Humphrey Lyttelton
Friday 12 September
9.00-10.00pm BBC FOUR


In a career spanning more than 60 years, Humphrey Lyttelton, who was born in 1921 and died earlier this year, established himself as one of Britain's greatest musicians, successful band leaders and admired broadcasters.


As a jazzman, "Humph" composed and performed Bad Penny Blues – the first jazz recording to enter the charts – and was feted by no less a figure than Louis Armstrong, who described him as this country's top trumpeter.


For more than 40 years, he hosted some of the BBC's most successful radio shows, including Radio 4's hugely popular I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue, the "antidote to panel game shows" in which Humph propelled the art of the double entendre to new heights, and Radio 2's Best Of Jazz.


In Legends – Humphrey Lyttelton, family, friends and colleagues pay tribute to this enormously popular entertainer. Featuring some never-before-seen home movie footage, archive films of his finest performances and interviews with regular I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue panellists Graeme Garden, Tim Brooke-Taylor, Barry Cryer, Jeremy Hardy, Rob Brydon and Sandi Toksvig, as well as Humph's son, Stephen, this film celebrates the life and career of one of Britain's most admired musicians and best-loved broadcasters.
