THERE seems to be no end to the phenomena of Dirty Dancing.

We've had the stage version and the documentary and now a collectors edition 20 years after the movie appeared.

There's something compelling about it all.

After all the story of a 17-year-old teenager being mesmerised by a dance instructor had all the makings of cliche and dross.

But it has survived and done nothing, meanwhile, to damage the reputation of Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey.

There are certainly a lot of people having the time of their lives.
