BAFTA events

What TV’s on at BAFTA in October? Including His Dark Materials and War of the Worlds

Every Tuesday, TMINE flags up what new TV events BAFTA is holding around the UK

October’s here already and typically, BAFTA has scheduled two stonking events without telling anyone – so I’ll do it instead. They’re both in Wales, mind, but if you fancy an exclusive preview of two big shows, that’s the place to be.

Preview Screening: His Dark Materials + Q&A

Thursday, 17 October 2019 – 7:00pm
Odeon, Cardiff

BAFTA Cymru, BBC Wales, Bad Wolf and Wales Screen invite you to take your first steps into Lyra’s world at the world premiere of His Dark Materials.

This BBC TV adaptation is based on Philip Pullman’s global best-selling fantasy trilogy, which has been published in over 40 languages and sold 18 million copies worldwide.
 
Starring James McAvoy, Ruth Wilson, Dafne Keen and Lin-Manuel Miranda, this complex and richly imaginative eight-part series is produced by Bad Wolf and New Line Cinema for BBC One and HBO; written by Jack Thorne and directed by Tom Hooper, Dawn Shadforth, Otto Bathurst, Euros Lyn and Jamie Childs.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with cast members Ruth Wilson (Luther, The Affair, Saving Mr Banks), Dafne Keen (Logan), Jane Tranter (Executive Producer) and Joel Collins (Production Designer).

Preview Screening: War of the Worlds + Q&A

Wednesday, 23 October 2019 – 7:00pm
Chapter, Cardiff

A chance to see a new adaptation of popular sci-fi series War of the Worlds, starring Gabriel Byrne (The Usual Suspects), before it is broadcast on Fox.

When astronomers detect a transmission from another galaxy, it is definitive proof of intelligent extra-terrestrial life. The world’s population waits for further contact with bated breath. They do not have to wait long. Within days, mankind is all but wiped out by a devastating attack; pockets of humanity are left in an eerily deserted world.

As aliens hunt and kill those left alive, the survivors ask a burning question – who are these attackers and why are they hell-bent on our destruction? Emotional, cinematic and rooted in character, it is a unique marriage of human drama and the best science fiction.

This is a story of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances – but they are more than just victims in a brutal war. For, as we will come to realise, the aliens’ savage attack on earth is not arbitrary: its seeds are being sown before our very eyes.

Set in present-day Europe, War of the Worlds is a multi-faceted series, written and created by the BAFTA award winner Howard Overman (Misfits, Crazyhead, Merlin) based on the timeless story by HG Wells.  It is being Executive Produced by Johnny Capps, Julian Murphy, and Howard Overman through their company, Urban Myth Films.

War of the Worlds was filmed on location in Cardiff.

The event will begin with networking drinks supported by Wales Screen.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with key creatives (details to follow).

To book a members’ ticket please email Ella.

Public tickets can be purchased via the Chapter box office (not yet available).
