Television: today's pick
Friday 26 December 1997
Before They Were Famous II (9.40pm BBC1) Enjoyable sequel to Angus Deayton's trawl of pre-stardom footage. Highlights this time include a young Tony Blair losing his deposit, Slade as a bizarre bovver-boy folk combo, Casualty's Charlie as a teenage pop star, Jonathan Ross in a Rice Krispies advert, and, best of all, Martin Clunes as a very Eddie Izzardish Dr Who villain.
Gone with the Wind (7.10pm C5) "Frankly my dear..." Go on, lip-sync your way through what is probably the most popular movie of all time, as legendary for its making as for what ended up on the screen. David O Selznick's production of Margaret Mitchell's Civil War epic, starring Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable, came with a long list of victims - notably director George Cukor, who was replaced by Victor Fleming (who in turn had a nervous breakdown). Fleming's sequences may be more prosaic than Cukor's, but at least he got the damned thing finished.
