It's funny really. I was a regular viewer of the Moviedrome series, and there's a few films on there I can't remember. I guess my memory ain't what it used to be.

I remember Alex Cox introducing An American Werewolf In London, and he was stood in the moors (or what looked like them anyway) and I seem to recall a wolf howling every now and again while he was talking. It set the atmosphere nicely.

They should bring it back today because there is nothing like it on tv.

Couldn't agree more mate. I used to love that show, along with a series called The Film Club which was shown in the late 80's as well, and then there was Dr. Terror's Vault Of Horror in the early to mid-90's. This showed some decent horror films too.

As do I. Cracking film also. The Blu-ray is great with plenty special features.

I think it has to be one of my favourite werewolf movies, and yes the blu-ray is terrific - bought that as soon as I saw it.

Just reading through that list, there's films on there that have probably never been shown again since the Moviedrome years. Yet they're quite happy to show Mary Poppins and Sound Of Music every year! Now, I don't object to musicals, but it'd be nice if the BBC catered for us horror fans too.

Have to agree with that. Although Mamma Mia was a horror film of sorts!

Well, I have to hold my hands up here and admit to never having seen this film, despite its apparent popularity. Is it worth a Blu-ray purchase?

Imagine if the BBC promoted something like this now instead of the endless series of depressing dramas they churn out featuring troubled detectives investigating murders in rain swept environments. I swear the same filter gets used for everything they make (for the record I don't watch any of these but the missus Mum does).

I believe Akira was shown on BBC2 once in the early 90's (with sub titles); not sure if it was under the Moviedrome banner.

I like Line Of Duty and Broadchurch, most other shows on broadcast are like you say, rubbish. The last cracking show except those two was Life On Mars.

Yes, totally agree with you. Soaps, make-over shows, reality TV - these are the kinds of programmes I detest. It's the reason why I don't watch a great deal of terrestrial TV any longer. The BBC (and even ITV to some extent) used to have decent interesting schedules which catered for everyone's tastes, but nowadays all channels are littered with the same garbage.

Channel 4 when it first began in the 80's used to be good because it was different to the other 3 channels, but sadly it's pretty much like the rest of them now. BBC4 is OK........at the moment.

The only series I watch on BBC One now is Doctor Who; I can't think of anything on ITV that I have any interest in.

Agreed about BBC Four.
