after Newsnight

Film In interesting piece of synchronicity, on the first Thursday without a Hitchcock review in quite some time (you can read the whole j-word here) BBC Two are rerunning the Paul Merton documentary that started it all tonight at 11:20 after Newsnight (and it should be available on iplayer at that link for the rest of the week).

Paul Merton Looks at Alfred Hitchcock an excellent survey of the silents and later British films, though I still think he's a bit harsh on Waltzes From Vienna which he thinks is the worst film Hitch directed. Clearly hasn't seen Topaz then. The documentary is followed by an umpteenth screening of The 39 Steps at twenty past midnight.
