The Shadowcast

A podcast on Roy Ward Baker & Ted Willis’ FLAME IN THE STREETS? How timely, what with it being Black History Month, and what with Guy Fawkes Night being on the way!

(Weirdly silent streets right now, normally our neighbours start letting off bangers a good month in advance… I suppose, having typed this, I’ll shortly be deafened by the sound of exploding children.)

 

Yes, THE SHADOWCAST is finally upon us/you. Episode 1 can be downloaded right here. We’ll try to get some more bells and whistles on it soon.

FITS features this fleeting appearance from the mighty Barbara Windsor. Also discussed in this week’s episode, SAPPHIRE — which has a cameo by the late, great Fenella Fielding, another CARRY ON star. And also also discussed is the superior POOL OF LONDON — which features a substantial supporting role for Sir Leslie Phillips (Hell-lo!). So there’s not only an overview of race relations in the UK as portrayed in films of this period (1951-1961), but a bit of a Carry On thing going on…
