What TV’s on at the BFI in September 2019

Every month, TMINE lets you know what TV the BFI will be presenting at the South Bank in London

After the traditional August lull, the BFI is back in full force for September, with a pretty epic line-up. There is a stonking season of Monty Python sessions, including a weekend airing every episode, as well as pre- and post-Python highlights such as Q5, Fawlty Towers and Rutland Weekend Television.

On top of that, there’s a showing of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and Doctor Who story Mindwarp, complete with Q&A with Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant, a preview of the forthcoming Temple with Mark Strong, and a preview of World on Fire. As if that weren’t enough, there’s a celebration of Not the Nine O’Clock News with John Lloyd and an episode of Porridge.

Wowzers. Full details after the jump. Be sure to comb through the details or you might miss something!

Every month, TMINE lets you know what TV the BFI will be presenting at the South Bank in London

It’s August at the BFI, and as happens every year, the schedule thins out to take account of everyone – audience and staff – being on their holibobs.

But there are a few things to look forward to. Following on from July’s 90s season, there are events dedicated to Queer as Folk, This Life and The Word, featuring both cast and crew. And there are previews of ITV’s forthcoming Jane Austen adaptation Sanditon and Netflix’s Dark Crystal prequel, Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.

Full details after the jump.

What TV’s on at the BFI in July? Including This Way Up, The Orchid House and 90s TV

Every month, TMINE lets you know what TV the BFI will be presenting at the South Bank in London

It’s a slightly eclectic and odd selection of TV shows at the BFI this July. How do they pick ’em? Well, there’s actually a session going behind the scenes at the BFI that explains their TV selections, so you best ask them then.

This month, though, the main feature is a nostalgic look at 90s TV. I say ‘TV’, but it’s mostly Screen One and Screen Two showings so borderline movies; however, there is a session dedicated to 90s kids TV shows, featuring some of the cast and creators, to look forward to.

On top of that, there’s a preview of Channel 4’s This Way Up, possibly including a Q&A with Aisling Bea and Sharon Horgan; and a day long showing of Channel 4’s adaptation of Phyllis Shand Allfrey’s The Orchid House.

Full details after the jump.

What TV’s on at the BFI in June? Including Poldark and Planet of the Daleks

Every month, TMINE lets you know what TV the BFI will be presenting at the South Bank in London

Only a few TV-related events at the BFI in June this year – maybe they expect us all to be outside having fun in the sun or something. However, there are a few of note.

Probably the most popular (only two tickets per person) will be the preview of the final series of Poldark, complete with Q&A with Aidan Turner, Jack Farthing and Luke Norris. But a close rival will be a screening of Doctor Who ‘classic’ Planet of the Daleks, complete with improved special effects for its Blu-Ray release – that’ll include a Q&A with companion Katy Manning.

Also airing as part of the BFI ‘Bitches’ season will be the complete series of The Life and Loves of a She-Devil and a discussion of Bad Girls that will take in Killing Eve, Clique and other shows. And as part of the LBGTQ+ BFI Flare season, there’ll be a screening of BBC docu-drama Stonewall. For details after the trailers and that She Devil.

What TV’s on at the BFI in May? Including Victorian Sensations and Afternoon of a Nymph

Every month, TMINE lets you know what TV the BFI will be presenting at the South Bank in London

As is traditional in the month following a BFI/Radio Times TV festival, there are pretty slim pickings for TV viewing at the BFI this May.

But there are a few things at least. There’s a preview of BBC Four’s forthcoming Victorian Sensations, which looks at the ‘thrilling era of the 1890s’. There’s a tribute to the rather talented Philip Saville that will include a showing of Armchair Theatre‘s Afternoon of a Nymph. And best of all, there’s a talk about Smallfilms and how it created Clangers, Ivor the Engine, Noggin the Nog, and Bagpuss.
