At last! In the summer 2016 issue I urged readers to contact Virgin Media and ask them to take the channel called Talking Pictures which deals with old films, particularly in black and white but also in colour.
It is a family- run business which unashamedly favours the kind of movie which all the family can enjoy without fear of bad language or worse. Imagine my delight, therefore, when our sound engineer, Eric Holmes, rang to tell me it had begun broadcasting on Virgin Media from 1st June while I was away on holiday.
It can be found on Channel 445, a most welcome addition to the other film channels, many of which feature only sleazy American movies quite unsuitable for the family in general or children in particular. It deserves our wholehearted support so please tune in if you possibly can. Hurrah!
