    Good film that one, but it's actually called "Upstairs and Downstairs" - the main attraction in my humble opinion is Claudia Cardinale



    What are they doing in my record room?

    And it didn't disappoint.

    Haven't seen those films you mention but I hope this is the theme tune:

    You haven't seen them? Address that oversight now. You should at least see 'Lovers Rock'- that's bang up your alley.

    Talking Pix TV probably my fave digital channel as well. A fascinating time capsule, and as is their remit, they show the stuff others don't. Usually a few good things crop up each week, and the public information films / old series are sometimes interesting, too.

    Have caught a few excellent things on there, including The Small World Of Sammy Lee, The Mind Benders, Billy Liar (I think) and Never Let Go, which I've later grabbed on DVD. Latter is cracking and features a superb John Barry score, Adam Faith plus Peter Sellers in a rare straight role as a leering second hand car vending sleazebag - well worth checking out.

    Talking Pictures TV is great - saw a clip of them on the news, is just an old man and his daughter running it from their home (after failing to get to other channels interested in showing the content). I hope it's a success, there's a huge gap in the market when it's the same stuff being endless repeated on other channels.

    Have seen or recorded loads of good stuff already - Tony Hancock's "The Rebel", Saul Bass's "Phase IV" (although to see the original ending you still need youtube), random bits of archive film (e.g. someone's holiday film from 1938), some Hammer films

    "Fear Is the Key" was on the other week, with the great Roy Budd soundtrack (all very exciting, except the plot doesn't really make sense when you think about it)
    Here's a few films I'd never seen before that have been on TalkingPicturesTV this year that I recommend to the house:

    where has poor old mickey gone (1964)



    girl with green eyes (1964)



    tiger in the smoke (1956)



    this is my street (1964)

    Have been enjoying "The Mind of JG Reeder" on TalkingPictures recently - very odd and with a flapper "disco" theme to boot

    For anyone with Netflix - really lovely little 15 minute documentary:

    John Was Trying To Contact Aliens
    https://www.netflix.com/gb/title/81252991

    he was broadcasting great music into outer space too - watched it a few days ago, but I remember seeing Harmonia, Steve Reich, Henry Wolff & Nancy Hennings, Tangerine Dream...

    I've got the Jason King box but I haven't started it yet. I've been working my way through the 'Numbers' sets. Just finished series 5 but it's hard to find 6 cheaply for some reason.
