Line of Duty tonight on BBC2 at 9pm. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01k9pm3
Having watched entire series of The Sentimental Agent I finally got round to buying Man of the World (ITC 1962 20X50mins), from which the former was a spin-off, which I am also too young to remember (and which Anglia TV also did not repeat). Just in time, as I understand Network DVD have deleted it!
My Name is Hallam Foe with Jamie Bell is on TV, never seen it
Merveilleuse Angélique on TV, Michèle Mercier and J.L Trintignant as the poet

Good choice, Sarge.
Re-watched this a couple of years back, after a long gap, and it still packs quite a punch.

same again on Standard DVD...
Plus hosts of other goodies including a small booklet with original posters & excerpts from Schlondorff's diaries...
If I can stay up to 3am Sunday morning, I will attempt to watch the 2008 French film L'heure d'été (Summer Hours) on BBC2 (see link). I wonder if our moonfleet has seen it?
Unlikely to be any nubile pouting babes in this movie.......but no matter, Vincent is superb in all I've seen him in so far....
