- TV: BBC One 9.25 pm Just Good Friends - new sitcom by John Sullivan, starring Paul Nicholas and Jan Francis.
- In the summer of 1976 Vince Pinner met Penny Warrender at a Rolling Stones concert in Hyde Park. After a two-year love-hate relationship, they planned to get married, but two days before the wedding Vince hopped on his motorbike and roared off into the sunset, leaving the broken-hearted Penny to pick up the crumbs of the uncut wedding cake. We now meet them five years later.
