With Simon Carver finally hanging up his cinematic spurs after over 11 faithful years of service, the Film Guide is back with a new presenting team. This week, celebrated local author Howard Linskey is choosing the films and he starts off with a look at new releases in the cinema and on Netflix. As is our custom, Howard concludes with his choice of films to watch on UK free-to-air TV.
However, he has squeezed in a new feature – Too Good To Be Forgotten. Each time Howard hosts, he will share with us a classic film he feels we should watch (if we haven’t already). He starts things off with the UK gangster classic ‘The Long Good Friday’.
Here are Howard’s selections for the films to watch on TV for the forthcoming week:
Friday 4th June
‘A Fish Called Wanda’
‘A Bridge Too Far’
‘The Colour of Money’
Talking Pictures TV
Great Movie Classics
(Friday 11th) 2.05am
