The BFI left it a bit late putting out the PDF of its guide last month, so since I'm an intrinsically lazy person who couldn't be bothered to type it all in manually, I decided to skip April and head into May instead.

Who's Frank Cvitanovich? He was a Canadian documentary maker who did lots of work for Thames TV, that's who. In particular, he made this one about Barry Sheene. You can't watch it at the BFI, though. Soz.
