    It would be better if they showed the many British films that have not received an airing on tv.

      I just watched The Red Shoes on BBC2. It was the restored print, restored by Scorsese’s Film Foundation. It was made in 1.37:1 so was shown with a black bar to either side of the screen.

      It it looked great

        Indeed, I have been waiting for a few films for decades.

        And eventually one is either disappointed or suffers with a form of 'post-purchase rationalisation'.

          BBC2 usually gets it right.

            Today’s film on BBC2 was Black Narcissus . Another fine film from Powell & Pressburger and The Archers

              Did it say that on the beginning or end credits?

                No, it’s usually at the end but it was cut from the BBC2 screening. However, I can tell the difference. Especially when I see the lady in the red and white striped dress at Lady Neston’s party where she first meets Lermontov
