What (more) TV’s on at the BFI in March? Including Remembering Television

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

A bit of a change from normal, in that the BFI is doing a BAFTA and releasing information about a new event with only a couple of weeks’ notice. It’s also an event that’s not actually being held at the BFI, but is to promote a Bloomsbury Publishing book, Remembering British Television: Audience, Archive and Industry:

Remembering Television: Then and Now

March 28

Bloomsbury Publishing UK
50 Bedford Square, WC1B 3DP London, United Kingdom
Timing: Doors open and complimentary drinks from 6pm. Our guests in conversation, followed by Q&A with audience members, from 6:30pm to 8:00pm.
Tickets: £15 for adults / £10 students and concessions

Step inside Bloomsbury Publishing as we ask how, when ‘television’ no longer means a box in the corner of the living room that we sit and watch together, do we keep safe the television of the past?

What is the past, present and future of television? We’re experiencing a golden age right now with new show-runners, streaming services and unique collaborations popping up every other week but how does this brave new world take its cue from all that came before? Join us as we host a wide-ranging discussion with three self-confessed telly-addicts actively working to preserve the past and inspire future generations of TV creators, producers and writers to come.

Join us as we take another look at television’s history by talking to the people who are making it their mission to keep the unforgettable moments alive for creators, researchers, writers and, most importantly, the fans. Authors of Remembering British Television, Kristyn Gorton and Joanne Garde-Hansen will be in conversation with Dr Elinor Groom, currently TV curator at the British Film Institute (BFI).

What TV’s on at the BFI in April? Including the BFI and Radio Times TV festival

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

Not totally surprising news this, but April’s BFI TV schedule is entirely focused on this year’s BFI and Radio Times TV festival. Lots to see and do already, including a preview of Summer of Rockets and chats with Joanna Lumley, Jed Mercurio and Charlie Brooker, but it’s worth remembering that the events featured here are already on sale, but more events will be added and go on sale from tomorrow for members, from March 12 for the public. There will also be a ticket buyback day on April 2.

On top of that, there’s also a two-part “Music Believed Wiped” that shows some previously lost musical material, including episodes of Cilla Black’s 1974 TV show, Cilla.

If you like European plays, you’ll love March at the BFI, as there’s going to be a season of TV adaptations of European plays from down through the ages.

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

After January’s sluggish start, the BFI is kicking things up a notch for February. The centrepiece is a season of forgotten black TV plays – expect lots of Don Warrington as well as Sammy Davis Jr – but there’s also a preview of the Channel 4/Netflix spy drama Traitors that’s followed by a Q&A with star Keeley Hawes, a Bill Hicks event and an airing of Doctor Who story Logopolis to coincide with its Blu-Ray release.
