Every month, TMINE lets you know what TV the BFI will be presenting at the South Bank in London
Oh, I do love October-November. All the leaves, colours. And, of course, all the lovely TV events that the BFI will be hosting. This ‘month’, in fact, there are a few doozies that I will shortly be booking, I suspect.
For most people, the appeal will be two previews with Q&As: the first of the fourth season of Inside No.9, at which Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith will be in attendance; the second of the forthcoming Hard Sun, written by Luther‘s Neil Cross and starring Jim Sturgess and Agyness Deyn.
For me, though, the big draw is Saturday 25th November’s ‘thrilling television’ day, which will include:
- A ‘Callan at 50′ panel discussion
- A ‘Sixties Spies and Beyond’ discussion that will include clips of The Avengers, The Man From UNCLE et al
- ‘The Prisoner at 50′, which will include a bespoke BFI cut of Network’s documentary.
That’s me sorted for the day. How do you reckon I break it to my wife?
Or that there’s a talk on the Wednesday evening about the state of conspiracy thrillers on UK TV, comparing them to classic shows like Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Edge of Darkness? Ah, waddya gonna do?
