After warming up last week, Richard E Grant hits the post-World War Two golden years of Ealing.

Which means Alec Guinness – the star of the big three films in the spotlight, The Lavender Hill Mob, The Man in the White Suit and Kind Hearts and Coronets, in which he played all eight members of the doomed D’Ascoyne family (you can see it at 8.05pm).

Michael Palin praises the Ealing ‘lightness of touch’, while Carrie Fisher, who worked with Sir Alec on Star Wars, tells Richard a very saucy story.
