Classic shows that have almost been forgotten, as well as shows that should probably have been forgotten
An occasional look at what classic TV shows Talking Pictures (Sky 328 | Freeview 81 | Freesat 306 | Virgin 445) is going to be airing soon
There’s been a late addition to the 19th July schedules at Talking Pictures. Airing at 6am is Night Prowl, a ‘lost’ 1958 sitcom pilot that aired as part of Studio 57, in which Dennis O’Keefe plays the editor of music magazine Take 5 – and solves crimes as a side line. Guest stars are Dennis Day, Bethel Leslie and Ray Anthony.
I also appreciate I’ve not been too comprehensive in my schedule-checking, so I’ve had a quick data mine of the schedules for June and July. Starting/being repeated at some point are the following shows: Hannay, Hawkeye and the Last of the Mohicans, Jack the Ripper (the mini-series with Michael Caine and Lewis Collins), Rooms, Special Branch, and Target: The Corruptors! Some of those have already started, in fact, so rush to the Talking Pictures schedules page to see when you can see them, as I’m in a rush.
All the same, that brings everything up to date – only new things from now on! Well, new old things, obviously…
