Television: Today's pick
Monday 19 January 1998
Heroes of Comedy: Peter Cook (9pm C4) No one has a bad word to say about Peter Cook and you begin to wish for some sort of dissention. Perhaps Dudley Moore's absence is the nearest we get to it. Cook's widow, Lin, appears on camera for the first time, however, to talk about their life together.
These Three (1.30pm C4) Sam Goldwyn, when told that the play he had just bought, Lillian Hellman's The Children's Hour, was about lesbians, is said to have replied, "That's okay; we'll turn them into Americans". Even so, this 1936 adaptation is far better than the explicit 1962 version. Bonita Granville was Oscar-nominated as the ghastly, spiteful pupil who spreads lies about her teacher, Merle Oberon, but Miriam Hopkins and Joel McCrea give the really classy performances.
