Shaun Of The Dead

It's hard to believe that Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg's romantic zombie comedy (RomZomCom) was in cinemas ten years ago this month... but it was. Time goes quickly. It's likely you've seen this superior comedy film before, but no harm in watching it again. It's repeated: ITV2, 10pm. Guide   See also: Free Screenplay

Also repeated today: classics like The Thin Blue Line on GOLD. Radio comedy includes a look at the topic of Intellectual Snobbery in Susan Calman Is Convicted and the military-based sketch show pilot Damn The Torpedoes! (see news story below). Schedule
