1 – 7 OCTOBER 2022

QUEEN & SLIM (2020) Sunday 2 October 10.45pm-12.50am BBC 2 P
I think members would have enjoyed this well-paced drama, had it made the final list. Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith are lovers-on-the run after an encounter with a racist white cop. There is a second showing Wednesday, 10pm on BBC 3.
THE SWORDSMAN (2020) Thursday 6 October 11.40pm-1.45am Film 4 P
Part of Film 4’s Korean season, The Swordsman riffs on the legendary Japanese Zatôichi films (the main series, centring on a blind avenger, ran from 1962 to 1989). It isn’t quite the same quality of drama (although the fight scenes are very good); you might like to give it a look-see, though.
WAVES (2019) Friday 7 October 9.00-11.10pm BBC 3 P
This tells the story of a black teenager who has to re-assess his future after an injury. It is a tough hitter (literally, as his character is a promising wrestler), and not one that we considered, so perhaps now is a good time
