Dear Supporters of Film and TV History,

Firstly, I must start with a thank you. The support for our new big 40-page, proper magazine “Intermission” has been overwhelming. TV advertising is at an all time low, so we have to keep thinking of new ways to keep those projectors whirring. If you haven’t subscribed yet, there is just about time to still take us up on the introductory offer of £55 for 12 issues, with the first magazine landing on your doorsteps the first week of May. The offer ends May 1st. Do call us quick to be a part of this wonderful community and help keep “Bob” in a job. This leads me to sad news. After almost 20 years, this is my last little free magazine. From typing them myself in a tiny room in dad’s house and writing all the addresses on the envelopes by hand to a free little magazine enjoyed by so many, this will be the last. Printing and postage costs have escalated over the last few years and I’ve tried very hard to keep it going, but alas, we just can’t afford it anymore. If you have enjoyed these little mags you will LOVE “Intermission”. Do give us your support if you can. For more details, click HERE

Now to some good news. I am delighted to be releasing the first in what I hope will be a long collection of DVD box sets from The Baim Collection. Some “reel” gems from an archive that has been almost kept a secret until now. At just £25 the first collection contains 20 shorts and 6 hours of nostalgic glimpses of a “lifetime ago.” I know you will enjoy this wonderful collection. More details HERE

Another thank you to all of you who travelled from far and wide to be with us for a spectacular weekend in St Albans recently. Surprise guests Hayley Mills and John Leyton were simply marvellous and your letters, calls and comments on how much you enjoyed the show have really made it all worthwhile. Do have a look at the photomontage below. I hope it will encourage you to join us in Monmouth, where I can announce one of our guests will be the wonderful Dame MAUREEN LIPMAN DBE – just 40 tickets left so be quick!

Lots of exciting developments going on behind the scenes: Mike Read has been busy filming a new series of “Writing on the Wall” – more details coming soon; and we have several new series in production. Due to popular demand, I’m delighted that Enemy at the Door will be returning to its rightful home on TPTV on Monday 6th May at 8pm (then every Monday at 8pm). Look out for a LOST SERIES REDISCOVERED – William at the Circus every week on Saturday Morning Pictures, starting on 11th May at 11.15am.  Another new series, Crime Story, begins on Sunday 5th May at 9pm, (then every Sunday at 9pm) – dramatic reconstructions of some of Britain’s most notorious crimes.

 For all you Frank Marker fans, there’s just a handful of tickets left on Sat 29th June 5.30pm-8.30pm and Sun 30th June 10.30am-1.30pm for our Public Eye location tour, quiz and afternoon tea. Dad and I look forward to seeing you all there. To grab a ticket, click HERE

So for now it’s a goodbye from us, but we will see you in the “Intermission”. Thank you as always for your support.

Best wishes, Sarah, Noel and Neill.
