Given it's August and everyone's going on their holidays, don't be surprised that there's not a whole lot of TV on at the BFI. However, it's by no means a desolate wasteland. There are TV previews of the forthcoming BBC Sitcom Season, including Young Hyacinth, as well as the first episode of the new series of Poldark. There's also a season of TV and film directed by Jack Gold, including Film4's impressive Stalin satire Red Monarch. And for Cult TV lovers, there are three episodes of Thunderbirds 65. Full run-down after the jump.

Or you might not.

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.
