What TV’s on at BAFTA in May? Including The Eddy

Every Tuesday, TMINE flags up what new TV events BAFTA is holding around the UK

Just as the BFI has started to adapt to the coronavirus quarantine, so too has BAFTA, which is now starting to organise online TV events. I must confess I only just noticed this so I missed last week’s Normal People (UK: BBC Three) panel discussion with Paul Mescal, Daisy Edgar-Jones and Lenny Abrahamson, but you can view that here:

Clearly, though, I’m going to have to keep my eye on BAFTA again.

After the jump, three events coming your way on Zoom in the next week: a preview of Netflix’s The Eddy, a session on the production challenges facing TV producers during lockdown, and a masterclass with Left Bank Pictures’ producer Andy Harries. You’ll be glad to hear they’re all free (I think).
