Sylvia Syms explores the BBC's archives, and chooses a selection of rarely seen interviews that tell the story of the acting stars who made 60's
Britain swing. We find Sean Connery wrestling with the pressures of Bond-mania, and the man who replaced him – George Lazenby – talking
about the pressures that came with his licence to kill. Peter Sellers discusses his affection for Inspector Clouseau, and Peter O'Toole explains how
he got into character for Lawrence of Arabia. Julie Christie, the actress who personified swinging London, talks about her stunning rise to Oscar-
winning stardom, while her ex-boyfriend Terence Stamp describes how he nearly killed her when they co-starred in "Far from the Madding Crowd."
Finally, and friends with them all, is Michael Caine who talks here about how secret agent Harry Palmer was the anti-Bond, how he wasn't living
the life of "Alfie", and how he came up with the plan for one of the decade's great feel-good films, "The Italian Job."

Hairy Bikers' Mediterranean Adventure
This week the battle is on with the heats for Northern Ireland. Competing for the top spot are two returning chefs and two newcomers to the competition : some of the most exciting cooking talent from Northern Ireland. Competitive chef Alex Greene is returning for another crack at the contest after being runner-up in the regional final last year. Having worked in a string of Michelin starred restaurants around the world he is now Head Chef at 1-starred Deane's Eipic in Belfast. He's hoping his classic style dishes which are big on flavour will see him through this time around. Shauna Froydenlund is also returning after being runner-up at the regional final two years ago. She's is co-Chef Patron with her husband Mark, of Marcus Wareing's restaurant, Marcus at the Berkeley Hotel. She is a classical chef with particular pastry expertise. Newcomer, Paul Cunningham is from Newcastle in Northern Ireland where he is Head Chef at Brunels. Paul prides himself on using local ingredients and is a keen forager so tries to get a wild ingredient into every dish. Leigh Ferguson from Lisburn is head chef at Clenaghans in Aghalee. Also an advocate of local Northern Irish produce, Leigh is hoping to knock out the competition with the exotic ingredients he likes to infuse his dishes with. Presenter and comedian Susan Calman welcomes them to the competition, which is harder than ever this year with an extra chef to beat and someone being eliminated each day. Today one of the four talented chefs will be going home so they'll have to impress their surprise veteran from the outset. First, they must whip up a new course: an amuse bouche or appetizer to tantalise the taste buds which will be served at the banquet this year. Unaware of who their veteran is, the four chefs prepare delicious mouthfuls, including salt aged beef tartare and a shamrock pie and bring them to the pass… as Tom Aikens steps into the kitchen to pass judgement. Although not officially scored, this mini course will be ranked and used in the event of a tie break. While this year's brief celebrates British success in children's literature, this week the chefs are specifically tasked with honouring the theme of magical lands and time travel in kid's books, some of the authors of which were from Northern Ireland. Returner Alex Greene is making a filled baked potato in a cheese custard which pays homage to Belfast author C. S. Lewis, whilst fellow newcomer Shauna Froydenlund had similar inspiration for her dish, Tea With Mr Tumnus, consisting of sardines on toast with an egg truffle and celeriac broth. Newcomer Paul Cunningham prepares an ambitious ode to Alice in Wonderland with his duck crumble with rhubarb starter and fellow newcomer Leigh Fergu-son honours Enid Blyton's Enchanted Wood in his mushroom panna cotta start-er which he serves with artichokes and hazelnuts. The chefs' fate depends on the scores they receive from their veteran and, with one person leaving after the fish course, nerves are running high. The chefs move on to the fish course with presenter Susan giving them support as they try to stay on track to avoid being the first to leave. Leigh's fish course is inspired by the Monster of Lough Neagh and showcases trout served with celeriac puree. Alex is planning on giving him a run for his money as he's cooking trout too but is serving his with beetroot. His dish, Parrotfish, is inspired by The Land of Neverbelieve by Norman Messenger. Shauna is cooking a dish inspired by the legend of Finn McCool which gave the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland its name. It will feature monkfish, turnips and potatoes. Paul is opting to cook halibut with oysters and foraged nettles and seaweed in an ode to Enid Blyton's The Magical Faraway Tree. With some surprising scores all round, who will be eliminated from the competition and not cook their entire menu? The pressure is on for all the chefs to deliver.
The Countess and the Russian Billionaire is a story of unimaginable wealth and luxury. Alexandra Tolstoy an aristocratic English rose, appears to have it all: A hugely rich and powerful partner, three beautiful children, homes across the world, a beachfront Caribbean hideaway, a chateau on the French Riviera, not to mention the housemaids, nannies, personal doctor and a wardrobe to die for. But her fairy tale life is about to come crashing down. Filmed over five years, this documentary steps inside the usually secret world of Alexandra Tolstoy and her partner, Russian oligarch and billionaire, Sergei Pugachev, as he flees Britain in fear of losing his fortune : and his life. Sergei Pugachev had amassed his huge wealth in post-communist Russia. He had oil fields, coalmines and shipyards, he even owned one of the biggest private banks in Russia. With a personal fortune of $15 billion, Sergei cemented his power by becoming a senator in the Russian parliament. By then he'd become one of Putin's most trusted advisers and was widely known as "Putin's banker". Sergei's huge wealth bought him a life of enviable luxury. When, in 2008, he fell in love with Alexandra his life appeared complete. Alexandra had a proud Russian heritage herself. Her father is Count Nikolai Tolstoy, a distant relative of the author Leo Tolstoy. The family have inherited Russian titles. But, in the same year that Sergei and Alexandra became a couple, the global crash led to the collapse of Sergei's bank. The Russian government tried to bail it out with a loan of a billion dollars, but it wasn't enough to save it. Then, once the bank collapsed, it was time to repay the loan and yet there was no sign of the money. Sergei claimed he'd sold the bank many years earlier, but Russia disagreed and held him liable for the bank's losses. Sergei fled Russia and went to live with Alexandra the children in London. Embroiled in an extraordinary world of bodyguards, death threats and lawsuits, Countess Alexandra Tolstoy finds life and love with a man on the run extremely stressful, especially as she desperately wants to protect the couple's three young children. Both in Britain and around the world, enemies of the Russian state are finding it hard to survive. Assassinations and mysterious deaths are happening year on year, with no way of knowing who will be next. Confronted by the unrelenting Russian regime and accused of embezzling a billion dollars of Russian government money, Sergei is under pressure. His assets are frozen worldwide and his empire starts disappearing before his eyes. In fear of his life, he flees to a gilded cage: his heavily guarded French chateau. In London, Alexandra and the children have to fend for themselves and her relationship with Sergei descends into acrimony. Sergei claims Alexandra was only ever interested in his money, while Alexandra accuses him of bullying and brutality. And three small children become estranged from the father they love. As Putin enters his twentieth year in power, this epic film tells the story of a brutal political regime and its catastrophic effect on one family. It's a very modern Russian fairytale about power, money : and love. Filmed in multiple locations : London, Oxfordshire, France, Russia and Kyrgyzstan, the film tells the love story of Countess Alexandra Tolstoy and Date Created : 25-March-2020 11:44:25 SM : PAC FORM ID : 18921376 Page 2 Commissioned Series Title: The Oligarch, the Countess and Putin (w/t) Commissioned Episode Title: The Oligarch, the Countess and Putin (w/t), 1 (1) Billed Series Title: The Countess and The Russian Billionaire Billed Episode Title: The Countess and The Russian Billionaire (1) SM UID: 18921376
Leslie is not looking forward to his mum's birthday lunch. Her new boyfriend Steve is only a year older than Leslie : not that you'd know it from the way he acts : and Leslie understandably finds their public displays of affection rather uncomfortable. But when Leslie's mum starts asking awkward questions about his ongoing and fruitless search for a proper job, Steve steps in and offers to arrange an interview for Leslie as a team manager at his friend's law firm. Steve can bypass the fact that Leslie has no experience, and even offers to lend him a suit for the interview, as he reckons looking the part will be the key to bagging the job. With a £50k basic salary on offer, Leslie decides to go for it. Leslie's preparation for the interview is meticulous. He looks the business, he's played the whole interview out in his head, he's thought of everything. It's only when he's waiting in reception that he realises he's still wearing his powder blue slippers. As usual, Leslie has a plan. A slightly mad plan. He steals a black marker pen from the receptionist when she's not looking, locks himself in the loo and colours his slippers in black so they look like shoes. Jemma calls to say he's left his shoes at home but it doesn't look like she can get them to him in time. Not a problem : the slipper colouring in plan looks like it'll work. Only then he hears the receptionist and her colleague talking about him : so not only is he in the ladies', but they're onto him. He goes to flush the marker pen down the loo, but it blocks the loo and floods it, so now there's water everywhere. The slippers get wet and start leaving inky black footprints everywhere. But Leslie manages to ditch them, before his interviewer Rav notices. The trick now is to avoid Rav noticing he's got no shoes on. Which he manages surprisingly well. Midway through the interview Rav steps out to make coffee and Jemma texts to say she's outside with the shoes. Leslie decides to make a dash for it, and gets back just in time : though he does knock a woman flying as he runs through reception, and knock the door off the interview room, on his way back. Rav offers Leslie the job, he just needs a senior manager to sign off the new hire. And here comes one now : in the shape of the woman he knocked over earlier. Oops. Though as ever with Leslie, he somehow gets out of the situation : albeit with a bump on his head …
