Synopsis:
BBC adaptations of two classic plays by the Irish dramatist George Bernard Shaw.

Pygmalion (1973)
The most famous and beloved of George Bernard Shaw's plays, 'Pygmalion' is a witty exploration of class and gender. Professor Henry Higgins (James Villiers) bets his friend that they can take a poor flower girl, Eliza Doolittle (Lynn Redgrave), and pass her off as a duchess. They teach her perfect English, manners, and how to dress, like a lady, but Eliza proves to be more than a match for her tutors.
Androcles and the Lion (1984)
George Bernard Shaw used the traditional fable of Androcles (Billy Connolly) to focus on the integrity of religious belief. Androcles, a Christian fleeing persecution in Rome, is captured by Caesar's men. Alongside other Christians - Ferrovius (Bernard Bresslaw), a fierce fighter; Lavinia (Anna Calder-Miller), a beautiful aristocrat and would-be martyr Spintho - he must face the lions of the Coliseum. How will each of them face their desperate fate?
