Do you remember the thrill and excitement of Saturday Morning Pictures? Where heroes and villains and clowns and crooners, invariably in glorious black & white, would entertain you for hours. Now those glorious days return, and it’s not just for Saturday mornings. It’s twenty four hours a day. Every day!

So, grab your bag of popcorn and your drink on a stick, take your seat in the one-and-nines, and re-live some of the rarest gems from British film history; plundering the deepest and darkest vaults of Pinewood, Twickenham and Shepperton Studios to present a wide variety of nostalgic treats.

Melt to the heart-breaking romance of Michael Denison and Dulcie Gray in ‘The Glass Mountain’. Gasp at the chilling horror of Sir Donald Wolfit in ‘Blood of the Vampire’. Bop to the pioneering rock ‘n’ roll of Terry Dene in
‘The Golden Disc’, and thrill at John Bentley as the dashing novelist cum amateur detective Paul Temple.

Creature Feature ‘Gorgo’ sees Bill Travers tackle a prehistoric monster who emerges from the depths to rampage across London. Horror legend Boris Karloff brings his television sleuth to the big screen in ‘Colonel March Investigates’, ‘Dixon of Dock Green’ star Jack Warner plays an altogether tougher policeman in the Brighton-based thriller ‘Jigsaw’, and Michael Redgrave and James Mason join forces for the genuinely creepy ‘Thunder Rock’.
