Alien Nation: A Season of Cult British TV

Sun 17 July 2011 // 18:00 / Cinema

A celebration of the freaky, spooky and obscure side of UK television drama. Programmed by James Leggott (Lecturer in Film and TV, Northumbria University) from the darker corners of the BBC archives, with special guest introductions, this is a rare chance to catch some of the most haunting telefantasy ever transmitted.

Expect angelic encounters, sacrificial offerings, gothic nightmares, dinner parties from hell, a very frightened Jane Asher, BBC Radiophonic weirdness… and Michael Parkinson being possessed by an evil spirit.
