What TV's on at the BFI in June? Including TV preview: The Living and the Dead, architecture on TV, and women and sound day

Not a massive amount of TV on at the BFI in June, but there are a few nuggets of goodness. For starters, there's a preview of the first episode of Ashley Pharoah's spooky BBC One period drama, The Living and the Dead. There's an entire day dedicated to the advent of sound in television and film, and its effect on women both in front of and behind the camera. A new documentary about Ken Loach's life and work, including his TV dramas, is getting repeated showings. And there's a season about architecture on TV, too. That's pretty good, actually.

What TV's on at the BFI in May? Including Peaky Blinders, The Hamburg Cell and Safe

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. However, to be honest, although there's a lot on at the BFI this month, there's not that much tele. 

There is a preview of series 3 of Peaky Blinders, complete with cast and crew Q&A. There's a new documentary about noted film and TV director Antonia Bird, Antonia Bird: From EastEnders to Hollywood, as well as a couple of her TV films, including Safe with Aidan Gillen, Robert Carlyle and Kate Hardie, and a docu-drama about the 9/11 terrorists, The Hamburg Cell. There's also a free talk for seniors about TV director Alan Clarke.

But that's it. Still, makes my life easier. What a lazy man I am.

What TV's on at the BFI in March? Including Doctor Thorne, The A Word and the Frank Cvitanovich season

Time to look at what TV the BFI is showing in March. With the LGBT Film Festival taking over the South Bank between 17 and 27 March, there's slim pickings, to be honest, but as well as a short season of Frank Cvitanovich documentaries, you can also look forward to previews of Julian Fellowes' adaptation of Trollope's Doctor Thorne and the six-part drama The A-Word, the word in question being autism.

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.
