The police lack the firepower and -- not surprisingly -- the witnesses to do much about the situation. The drivers widows association is a measure of the crisis: its numbers have grown by 178 in the last year. LizSmithsSummerCruise BBC2, 7pm FanS of The Royle Family will have been saddened by the news earlier this year that Liz Smith -- who played nana -- was retiring from acting following a stroke, so this documentary, made before her illness, is a welcome reminder of her singular charm. The camera follows the 87-year-old on a cruise across the adriatic, and though Smiths not a natural on the water -- she dons a lifejacket for practise with worrying frequency -- theres a great deal of pleasure to be had in her eccentric wit. We also learn about her traumatic childhood, and get to appreciate what a tough character she is underneath. T he Seventies were a classic age for hollywood movies: Scorsese and Coppola, Pacino and De Niro. And what was British film up to at the time? Two words: Robin Askwith. The cheeky chappy with a perma-grinning mug kept the industry going pretty much single-handedly thanks to the Confessions Of... series. Seeing him pop up tonight with a cameo appearance in Benidorm brought back my bitter adolescent disappoint- ment at how little deserved the video X certificates turned out to be, but I wont question the casting. The prototypical likely lad -- less an actor than a role model for a generation of undersexedCon is on: guest star Robin Askwith as a fraudster tonight Coronation Street ITV1, 7.30pm/8.30pm iTS the day of the christening, but outside the church theres a furious set-to between Jimmy and Tony (Gray oBrien, right) over Carla. Which of the two men will back down? Meanwhile, there are problems for Mollys secret plans -- all thanks to a birthday present... tual its probably going to be easy pickings. To tell the truth, Askwiths appearance adds a much- needed injection of energy to whats been a very up-and- down third series. My guess is the new hour-long format may be to blame -- no sitcom should ever last longer than 30 min- utes (there should be a UN treaty on this). As it is, there are too many poor gags to pad things out: we even get a doctor from India who -- get this! -- cant speak english. Fun-ee -- I dont think. (And have the writers not reg- istered its only thanks to the perfect grammar of the sub- continents call centres you ever get to speak to a human being on the phone nowadays?) Still, at least its all in the great tradition of British screen.
