Talking Pictures TV

It has recently come to our attention that from the afternoon of Thursday 30th November Talking Pictures TV will be available on Freeview NATIONWIDE to 90% of the Country. If you can currently watch Yesterday Channel on number 19 or Home on number 25 you will be able to receive it (well, virtually everyone!). No need for any special TV or HD box equipment, the signal is being boosted so even more people will be able to watch on channel 81 Nationwide. 

We, and we know that many of our contributors currently enjoy this channel and as a result a number of locations have been resolved, indeed two very recently, as a result of viewing a film. Please help us and Talking Pictures by supporting their extended coverage.

Talking Pictures TV can currently be viewed on Virgin 445, Freesat 306, Freeview 81, Youview 81 and Sky Channel 343. It is also available on free-to-air satellite service.

Autumn Reel Streets Meeting

Apologies for the short notice, plenty of reasons but no excuses. The autumn get together has been arranged for this Wednesday the 4th October starting at The Holly Bush, 22 Holly Mount, Hampstead London NW3 at 4.30pm, this "watering hole" features in The Killing of Sister George. Suitably refreshed we propose moving back down on to Heath Street, passing settings for other productions as we make our way to The Flask on the corner of Back Lane and Flask Walk. Hampstead features in a host of other films, many of the locations will be close to hand. Search our Website with "Hampstead".

We hope to see you at one or both "watering holes". 


Just as we are leaving The Holly Bush and moving on to the next.


Adrian Grepnold, Phil W, John T, Richard L, Peter and Simon J
