Baseball is a great sport for his people; it's the only sport in the world in which a negro can shake a stick at a white man and not start a riot - laughter and applause. White audience. Another political joke - 'We have a lot of racial prejudice up north but we're so clever with it. Take my home town, Chicago.

Interview with Denzel Washington on the set of 'Much Ado About Nothing'. He is excited about the film and how Kenneth Branagh is bringing Shakespeare to a wide audience. Questioned further on what it is that Branagh is doing to make Shakespeare more accessible, Washington finds it is the freshness of his ideas and his simplifying of the text, which makes the visual expressions take precedence over the verbal ones. The interviewer takes issue with the "trimming" of the text to which Washington replies that it is no good if no one is looking at it and that this film is trying to reach people who might feel intimidated by the language. He is asked about the kind of films he chooses to do. He appreciates variety in his professional life and takes on films which are interesting to him and are not necessarily the big budget Hollywood films.

She holds her hand to her head in distress and prepares to start. She has a large mangle and washes in a butler sink. The woes of washing day and its drudgery are expressed. Why does it always rain on Mondays ? The scene fades out. She leaves the kitchen hung with all the clothes she has just washed. She complains that they will haunt her till they dry. She sits with a cup of tea and turns on the radio which announces " Woman's Hour ". The women on the radio says she wants to talk about wash day. Our woman reaches to turn off the radio in disgust. The radio woman says wait, it needn't be that awful and she has some household hints and suggestions to help it all easier for the housewife. There then follows a subtle sell of electrical goods, made to sound like useful tips. Our woman closes her eyes, in her seat and dreams of the perfect kitchen and laundry room in an ideal home.

A detailed description of how to fill the machine from the tap, make sure you plenty of soap powder in stock. Rinsing the wash in the sink and using the same water for a number of washes. Using an electric mangle rather than a hand one. Then hanging every thing in the drying cupboard. Everything and each procedure is described in great detail.

A exterior shot of a housing estate in Hackney, London. The communal laundry room where there is a rota system. But the commentary says no one would like their dirty laundry in public. But no, each woman has a separate room with a sink and a mangle and large launderette style tumble drying machines. However the rule is no children. Do the best you can and " Be ready for the brave new world as it is ready for you ". Our woman has a hopeful gleam in her eye and looks converted.
