Box Set

Posted in FILM, MUSIC, Mythology, Politics, Television with tags on December 22, 2018 by dcairns

A single posting with all our podcasts in reverse order.

#1: BLACK HISTORY MONTH looks at three racially-charged British dramas: SAPPHIRE and POOL OF LONDON, from director Basil Dearden, and FLAME IN THE STREETS, directed by Roy Ward Baker.

#2: MIDTERM MAYHEM tackles US political satires of the nineties: MAD CITY and WAG THE DOG and BULWORTH (with a dash of PRIMARY COLORS): Costa-Gavras, Barry Levinson and Warren Beatty are the directors (plus Mike Nichols).

#3: THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF HORROR sees us discussing TO THE DEVIL A DAUGHTER, FRIGHTMARE and THE MONSTER CLUB, helmed by Peter Sykes, Pete Walker, and the return of Roy Ward Baker.

THE MINISODE! A much-needed commentary track for the Edison Company’s A WINTER STRAW RIDE.

And, most recently (yesterday, in fact) ~

#4: THE FROZEN WASTES

Tales of Arctic and Antarctic extremity, with The Terror (our first TV show; various directors); SCOTT OF THE ANTARCTIC (Charles Frend); THE RED TENT (Mikhail Kalatozov). Plus a babel of wintry voices, sounds, and music cues, to make you feel all the cosier as you snuggle in front of a roaring great laptop.
