It’s the birthday of Tom Hanks, star of a magnificent portfolio of movies including Forrest Gump, Saving Private Ryan, Cast Away and the Toy Story series.

In 2014 Hanks was recorded by one newspaper as the highest-grossing actor in film history. His acting career began at school and continued on an ever-ascending path from then on, and he made living history when Asteroid 12818 Tomhanks was named after him.

Tonight we'll be watching one of our favourite movies, Forrest Gump, with a Roadrunner in one hand and a table-tennis bat in the other.
