The award for the most specialized television show of the year is presented to… This week’s feature on traditional gothic tales delves into the idea of the “outsider” in gothic literature, examining works such as The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and Stephen King’s novels.

Film choice

The movie “Shaun of the Dead” directed by Edgar Wright in 2004 will be airing on Sky Cinema Greats at 6:05pm.

“The opportunity to watch all three films in the Cornetto trilogy, starting with Hot Fuzz and The World’s End, is now available. The first installment, directed by Edgar Wright and featuring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, is widely considered the best. It is a comedic take on zombie films set in a London suburb, building on the TV comedy Spaced’s theme of movie enthusiasts. The main characters, Shaun (Pegg) and Ed (Frost), discover new layers to their otherwise mundane lives when they are faced with a zombie invasion. As expected, the story culminates in a trip to the pub.” – Simon Wardell

Michael B Jordan and Jamie Foxx in Just Mercy

The movie Just Mercy, directed by Destin Daniel Cretton in 2020, will be airing at 9:30pm on BBC Three.

The movie “Just Mercy” directed by Destin Daniel Cretton highlights the racial injustices ingrained in the US justice system. The film is based on true events and follows Harvard-educated lawyer Bryan Stevenson, played by Michael B Jordan, as he fights for the innocence of Walter McMillian (Jamie Foxx), a Black man wrongly convicted and sentenced to death in Alabama for the murder of a white girl. Throughout the film, we see the impact of police intimidation, false witness testimonies, and underlying prejudice on Stevenson’s pursuit of justice, ultimately leading to a powerful argument against the use of capital punishment.

The Wicker Man (Robin Hardy, 1973), 10pm, BBC Four
Fifty years ago this month, Robin Hardy’s soon-to-be-cult movie was released as the B-picture on a double bill with Don’t Look Now. It has taken decades for it to be recognised as the equal of Nicolas Roeg’s masterpiece, but there’s no doubt now about its status as the pinnacle of British folk horror. It’s a chilling, sensual clash between Christian and pagan values on a Hebridean island, personified on the one hand in Edward Woodward’s policeman – there to investigate a young girl’s disappearance – and on the other by Christopher Lee’s lord of the isle, where daylight offers no respite from the darkness.
