November 2011 at the BFI

Not a lot of tele at the BFI in November this year, but what there is is top quality: a preview of the first episode of the new series of Sherlock, as well as a Q&A with Sharon Gless and Barney Rosenzweig to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Cagney and Lacey. And on top of that, there’s also a lost ITV play recovered from the Library of Congress and starring Charles Gray and Susannah York.
