Totally agree with you Arthur. When you see some of the utter garbage they put on to entertain us these days it's hard to understand why they won't put on things that are a little older. Maybe it's for P.C. reasons. We often say in our house how sorry we feel for older folk, who might want to watch some of that type of film.
Even Channel 4 doesn't seem to show as many old films as they used too.

Jack Smethurst mentioned doing this series, when he was being interviewed last week, on Talking Pictures TV. He said the producers got him to talk Irene Handle round into doing another series of the show. It was a good interview. I like Jack. It's a pity he disappeared from our screens, after the seventies. I will hopefully get the show on dvd sometime. Bronson.

I'd not heard of Talking Pictures. Had a look at the site & they show some great, more obscure films from the 60's & 70's. Unfortunately it looks like it's not available in my area as the channel isn't listed on my tv.
Do you mind not calling me squire or chief or boyo or mate?

They've had some good guests on the interview slot on Talking Pictures recently. Shirley Eaton, Sylvia Sims. (She was good. She mentioned making a film with Sid James, who tried to make her laugh every day as she " Had recently lost a little girl." Sounds like he was a great fella' our Sid.) I thought the bloke doing the interviewing did a good job too, unlike some interviewers. I love watching the 50's British films when I get a chance. They show a lot of those, quite a few of which I've not seen before. Bronson.
