Default Heads up people - The upcoming television programme thread

Although there is a thread on the forum for what shows you have seen on television, there is not a specific thread giving notice of any shows that are upcoming

Hopefully, this will be that thread, so use it to note anything you see advertised as 'coming soon' or being noted in listings magazines etc

To start with, the complete BBC4 schedule for Friday 23rd September - Sunday 26th September could be interesting. The entire weekend is being given over to Keef Richards from The Rolling Stones

The main broadcast, spread out over 15 episodes throughout the weekend, is 'Keef Richards Lost Weekend' - "The veteran rocker takes over BBC Four for three nights of dusk to dawn programming, in a pirate broadcast. Replacing the usual channel programming practice or convention, he airs his world views, life philosophy and survival strategies as well as all things nocturnal."

In addition to that, there are documentaries about Richards, Johnny Cash and London (directed by Julien Temple: "Chronicling a century of the capital's history, Julien Temple's rousing documentary makes exceptional use of a dazzling range of archive material to capture the personality of London and the changing face of the people who have shaped its destiny over the past 100 years. Opening with the recollections of 106-year-old Hackney resident Hetty Bower, the film celebrates the indomitability of the city's multifarious citizens, who have managed to keep calm and carry on in the face of sieges, rallies, wars and riots, as well as seismic social, political and cultural transformations. The clips from pioneering film-makers such as Harry B Parkinson and the members of the British documentary movement are aptly chosen and amusingly counterpointed by a splendid soundtrack. Temple also devotes plenty of time to insights from the likes of Tony Benn, Michael Horovitz, Ray Davies and Suggs. He might have given ordinary folk more of a say, but that's a minor criticism of this witty, trenchant and utterly compelling film.")

There are also screenings of some of his favourite films - 'The 39 Steps' (1935), 'The Girl Can't Help It', 'The Sorcerers', 'The Bicycle Thieves', ' I Walked With A Zombie', 'The Man Who Would Be King', 'Pandaemonium' and 'Build My Gallows High'

No, not yet. Believed to be October on BBC1. Should be shown soon after it's online debut according to reports.

I'm really excited about Class because it's written and created by Patrick Ness who is an author I like to read. I know it's in the Whovian 'verse but hopefully that wont exclude people who aren't fans.

From reading other forums it's not exactly a popular idea among fans.

The fact the Doctor is in the first episode sort of ranks it above Torchwood in the Who stakes.

Just in case you weren't aware Torchwood was a spin off which ran for four series and focused on John Barrowman's Captain Jack character. It was an adult show with sex, swearing and strong gore at times. Although Jack appeared in Doctor Who, the Doctor never appeared in Torchwood - there is a difference.

According to the press release, Class features sexual relationships between the students and has an adult theme. I hope it's not Waterloo Road with an alien of the week thrown in for good luck.

Patrick Ness has likened it to Buffy and one of his books is very Buffy-esque so he's a fan. I'm expecting it to be where Whedon meets 'The Doctor'.

Do we need an inferior Buffy?

You see, now you've added far higher expectation levels seeing as Buffy was the best thing on tv when it aired.

I thought we already got an inferior Buffy with the Davies era?

Starts Saturday, 1st October on Talking Pictures TV (Sky 343 Freeview 81 Freesat 306 YouView 81) at 7:00pm - H G Well's 'The Invisible Man'

I think this must be the 1958 version, and if it is, it features a young Deborah Watling
