On telly this week

Emperor:
As we are firmly in the grip of the festive schedules I thought it worth starting a thread where people can post any genre treats they've spotted in their TV guides to help others navigate through what is otherwise the loose bowel of televisual times. Then we can keep it going on a rolling basis.

Emperor:
What caught my eye was BBC2's late night vintage horror films that I'll be settling down in front of the boob tube to watch (as there is a lack of actual boobs on the box, not counting Giles Brandreth), note that they are technically on in the early hours of the next day but count as the day mentioned for the purposes of TV schedules:


* Cat People (1942) produced by Val Lewton and directed by Jacques Tourneur - Boxing Day 1.10 am BBC2
* I Walked with a Zombie (1943) produced by Val Lewton and directed by Jacques Tourneur - Tuesday 27th 1.30 am BBC2
* The Leopard Man (1943) produced by Val Lewton and directed by Jacques Tourneur - Wednesday 28th 1.30 am BBC2
* The Body Snatcher (1945) produced by Val Lewton and directed by Robert Wise with Boris Karloff - Thursday 29th 1.30 am BBC2
* The Curse of the Cat People (1944) sequel, produced by Val Lewton and directed by Robert Wise - Friday 30th 1.25 am BBC2
Pity they couldn't do a longer run of Newton's films to include more of them, but I've seen Isle of the Dead a couple of times and I do have The Ghost Ship on DVD, so I might throw that on at some point - keep the theme going.

I wish the BBC would do more themed evenings like that.

mogzilla:

radiator:
BBC3 have been showing Simon Amstell's 'Do Nothing' live show recently, and it's currently available to view on iPlayer.

Went to see this show live last year, and enjoyed seeing it again on the tv.

Roger Godpleton:
Cartoons everywhere I see. I enjoyed seeing Kung Fu Panda 1 once again.
