Not missing (thanks goodness), but worth mentioning that 'Talking to a Stranger' is being screened this Saturday on BBC-4. I hope it isn't cropped to 16:9. It is also getting it's first screening on Television since the 1980s! Theatre 625, film recordings, for those who might wonder.

I can even live with 'fake stereo', but cropping is an abomination. Another problem with BBC-4 is that even with the onscreen station ident removed, the quality of the picture leaves much to be desired. This is especially noticable when archive films are screened. Film recordings need all the help they can get. Digital encoding and decoding has introduced 'noise' on top of existing 'noise'!

We can agree to differ about fake stereo, Andy. However, I'm delighted to report it is in unbastardised mono and 4:3, despite the preceding continuity announcement having a strange delay effect applied to it.
