i keep forgetting about Sky Arts (ch 11?) but over the last week we've had
KT Tunstall on Ivor Cutler (including her singing Beautiful Cosmos to Phyllis)
Trailblazers: Two Tone (Noddy Holder narrated documentary, very Specials-centric, some good contributors like, surprisingly, Pete Waterman, who was DJ at the Locarno when the Coventry Automatics played there)
The Art Of Architecture on Battersea Power Station
er, Portrait Artist Of The Year
Punk Night tomorrow by the look

I thought 'Danny Dyer on Harold Pinter' on Sky Arts was some kind of pisstake, but apparently Dyer worked with Pinter and is a big fan, so fair dos.

I watched a thing about John Belushi which was quite poor (and had an odd, stilted, machine-translated-back-and-forth voiceover), and "Rankin's 2020", which obviously fulfilled my long-held wish for EXIF data to pop up onscreen when showing pro-grade photographs, but was still unsatisfying. Still, it beats Border Patrol on ch11.

Horror Channel is showing the old Universal monster films on monday lunchtimes. I'm guessing Dracula was on first, i caught Frankenstein (1931), missed The Mummy (1932). Wolfman (1941) is on tomorrow, and Creature from the Black Lagoon is on the 8th.

so, some years ago i turned the tv on after midnight and caught the middle of a film about an american soldier's night in britain - failed visit to prostitute, picked up in a pub and rolled by the woman's compatriots, falls (mutually) for (very shy) barmaid, gets chased by the military police. curious little film.
i caught it, again by accident, about two months later, but again not all of it.
last night i taped something on spec from Talking Pictures. "A sensitive story of two airmen. One with a terrible injury and one dealing with life" and it's the film i didn't know the name of. "During One Night" it's called, barmaid is Susan Hampshire.
(said terrible injury, the bit i'd missed before now, is losing his penis (probably more). whilst still a virgin (hence prompting the other one's visit to the prostitute). kills himself over it in the end)
