November at the BFI

Time for our regular round-up of tele events at the BFI. No TV season in November but there are isolated pockets of TV-ness to be enjoyed

  • 3rd: Sir David Attenborough in conversation. Preceded by episodes of Life on Earth and Life in the Undergrowth
  • 30th: The Naked Civil Servant. Next month will feature a preview of An Englishman in New York

Members’ priority postal booking opens 29 September

There’s also a bit of a Play for Today theme this month. Every Saturday and Sunday, the Studio will be holding free, 47 minute performances of some of the best bits from plays such as Mike Leigh’s Nuts in May and Jack Rosenthal’s Bar Mitzvah Boy. And the Mediatheque has a few additions to its existing library of plays, including David Hare’s Dreams of Leaving, starring a young Bill Nighy.

As always, visit the BFI web site for more details

October at the BFI

Time for our regular round-up of tele events at the BFI. Despite the presence of part two of the "Time Machine" season in October, there’s still nothing timey-wimey. But there is this:

1st: Michael Parkinson in conversation. He’s going to be interviewed by Melvyn Bragg and sign his autobiography, too.

13th: Roger Moore in conversation. No celebrity interviewer as far as I can see, but he’s going to be chatting about just about everything exciting in his TV career. There’ll be screenings beforehand of The Saint episode The Miracle Tea Party, which Moore also directed, and The Persuaders!‘s The Time and The Place.

Members’ priority postal booking opens 26 August
Members’ online and phone booking opens 1 September
Public booking opens 5 September

There’ll also be free drop-in screenings in the Studio on 4, 5, 11 and 12 of the 1963 documentary West Indians, which looks at a working-class Caribbean migrant’s search for accommodation in London.
