Talking Pictures June 2020: Budgie, William Tell and Sir Francis Drake

An occasional look at what classic TV shows Talking Pictures (Sky 328 | Freeview 81 | Freesat 306 | Virgin 445) is going to be airing soon

Last week, TMINE launched the new Talking Pictures schedule guide, looking at what classic TV shows were coming to the channel in May and June. However, a few of the shows didn’t have start times – now they do.

Budgie is going to be starting on Tuesday 16th June at 9pm. The Adventures of Will Tell is going to be part of a daily 9am ITC The Adventures of… slot – The Adventures of Sir Lancelot is Thursdays, The Adventures of Robin Hood on Wednesdays and The Adventures of William Tell will be on Tuesdays.

That starts the week of June 15, with Mondays being the new addition to the schedule of The Adventures of Sir Francis Drake.

But that’s just the highlights, so keep your eyes glued to the schedule to see what else is on.
