      I so miss the horror double bills even though I have many on DVD it was such a pleasure sitting down on a Saturday night to enjoy them with family members. And even more of a pleasure talking about them with your friends on Sunday and at school, happy days.

            BBC2 used to show some classics back then with their double bills, including various Hammer titles. Like yourself, I now have near enough all the films that were shown on either DVD or Blu-ray, but the double bills were a good introduction for me to the world of classic horror going right back to the 30's Universal classics. I was still at school when they were originally broadcast in the late 70's.

            Equally, I used to enjoy BBC2's 'Moviedrome' series as well from the late 80's right through the 1990's, with Alex Cox introducing the films for the first few series.

              I still have the video from a Christmas BBC double bill from many years ago of The Curse of Frankenstein and Dracula

                A great double bill there. Even Channel 4 had a season back in 1986 called the "Monster Horror Season" which showed horror films mostly from the 1930's and 40's. However Channel 4 didn't appear to have regular seasons from year to year like the BBC did, but the occasional one they had contained some good movies.

                      Let them still campaign or leaflet as much as they want. As long as they don't disturb me

                      None of this campaigning or leaflet affects anything anyway.

                      Most people can't be influenced that easily

                            Thank you my friend for the greeting and the fantastic cutting. I do love my horror in all shapes and forms.

                          That was my introduction to Universal horror. I was 12 in 86 and remember staying up late to watch these with my brother. I loved them and still do.

                            Hi TV Horror, Channel 4 began 4 years earlier in 1982, around November I think it was. In my opinion, I'd say Channel 4 had more interesting schedules back in the 80's than they do now, although their film seasons were more sporadic than with the BBC.

                            Thanks Carl, I remember it well because they used to show trailers and it was the first time that I had ever watched The Vampire Bat with Lionel Atwill.

                            Channel 4 had a gradual rollout and I was jealous of those able to see Tod Slaughter films on a Friday night which we couldn't. Then suddenly Channel 4 became available here months earlier than announced and I prayed it would stay on long enough for me to see for the first time (and record) that Friday's The Lodger (1944) with Laird Cregar and The Face at the Window (1939) with Mr. S. It did and I did!
