What TV’s on at the BFI in September-October 2017? Including The Last Post, Liar and The Boy With The Topknot

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

We’re back to that curious time of year in the BFI calendar known as ‘September-October’, which is when we get a big rundown on both September and to a lesser extent October’s schedule, the latter of which will get a top-up in a month or so once the BFI catches up with itself.

There are two strands to the programming in this bi-month. The first is a jazz season, featuring archives appearances on British TV of greats including Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie and Thelonious Monk.

The second, somewhat less surprisingly given the autumn TV season is nearly upon is, is previews of three upcoming UK TV programmes:

  • Peter Moffat’s The Last Post (with Jessica Raine and Ben Miles among others)
  • ITV’s suspiciously The Affair-like Liar (with that Ioan Gruffudd)
  • The Boy With The Topknot (featuring Marvel’s Iron Fist‘s Sacha Dhawan – yes, I will always be referring to him as that from now).

Q&As with cast and crew are scheduled for all three of those, so I’d book my tickets quickly, if I were you.
