    Harry I'm showing that Quatermass and the Pit is on at 11pm on Mon 12 Oct. on TPTV

    Well worth a watch, Nigel Kneale's original TV drama brought to the screem.
    Allowing that the effects maybe a bit ropey , the story is original and quite disturbing.

    Seen it a few times, brilliantly effective story. Well worth seeing for anyone who loves a low key apocalypse!

    The Man from Snowy River (1982)
    The son of a mountain farmer is forced to leave his home after the death of his father, and goes to work for a cattle rancher in the lowlands. He falls for his employer's daughter, while discovering the story behind the man's long-standing feud with his twin brother. Australian Western, starring Kirk Douglas in a dual role, with Tom Burlinson and Jack Thompson

    Edit: - Watching also has Sigrid Thornton in it.


    Is there other actors/actress that have appeared both in 'Prisoner CBH' & 'Wentworth'?


  • Early heads up, Apostasy is on BBC2 on Saturday night at 10pm

    It's a really powerful British film from a few years ago about the relationship between a mother and her two daughters who she is raising in the Jehovah's Witness faith. One sister leaves the faith and the other starts to question it as their separation draws out. It's written and directed by a former JW member and is a pretty damning portrait of the religion without being preachy or over the top dramatic.

    War of the Planet of the Apes could be considered Fantasy / Sci-Fi. It was my least favorite of the latest Planet of the Apes films.
