This coming Friday (12 July) is Kenneth More Day on Talking Pictures TV. Starting at 6.10am with "Our Girl Friday" finishing at 1.20am the following morning with the conclusion of "Loss of Innocence". In between we have "Man in the Moon", "Some People", "Brandy for the Parson", "North West Frontier", "Genevieve" and "The Comedy Man". Plus two biographical segments, "Remembering Kenneth More", at 2.30 and 8.15. No showing of "Reach for the Sky", though, which, as I recall, always used to be our end of term "treat" at school courtesy of a cine projector and a white screen.
And this Tuesday at 6.30pm on the same channel is "Miss Robin Hood" with Margaret Rutherford & Richard Hearne (Mr Pastry to you and me) with early uncredited appearances by Kenneth Connor and Ian Carmichael (as an office junior). Also featuring Arthur Rigby, who those of a certain age will recognise as the Desk Sergeant at Dock Green "nick".
