Who would have thought that the BBC would show an ex-video nasty (The Evil Dead on BBC 3, well done the Beeb) and there are two rare films on Talking Pictures: Brotherhood of Satan (1970) and The Ghost of Sierra de Cobre (1964) starring Martin Landau.
LILIES OF THE FIELD (1963) Saturday 22 October 2.00-3.30pm BBC 2
Sensitive, delicate drama directed by Ralph Nelson – especially when considering that his other best-known film was Soldier Blue (1970). Sidney Poitier rightly won an Oscar as the handyman who helps German nuns build a chapel.
AFTER LOVE (2020) Sunday 23 October 10.50pm-12.15am BBC 2 P
