THE BEST OF BRITISH – PART 4 Last summer's big hit comedy reunited director Lewis Gilbert and author Willy Russell to repeat the success they had with 'Educating Rita'. 42-year old Shirley, (Pauline Collins) seizes the chance to flee from drudgery in a Liverpool suburb to a Greek island in the sun where she receives the amorous attentions of the local bar owner (Tom Conti). Pure escapism.
