There was Drama and Comedy Connections, and this new spin-off is the one I could not miss, at least for the films I really know and like. Narrated by Ugly Betty's Ashley Jensen, this programme every episode basically focused on one particular British film; with cast, crew and critics interviews, clips of course, and other info (e.g. awards, acclaim, box office success) to help explain why the film is such a favourite with audiences. The films they have focused on have included: Four Weddings and a Funeral, Billy Elliot, Bend It Like Beckham; Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Shakespeare in Love, Brassed Off and Gregory's Girl. With contributions from: Hugh Grant, James Fleet, Simon Callow, David Haig, Sophie Thompson, Mike Newell, Richard Curtis, Jamie Bell, Gary Lewis, Julie Walters, Stephen Daldry, Parminder Nagra, Juliet Stevenson, Gurinder Chadha, Joseph Fiennes, Rupert Everett, John Madden, Marc Norman, Mark Herman and many more. Very good!
