Lockdown Links #6

New on streaming services.

With a heavy heart I paused my Cinema Paradiso subscription last night having decided to stay at home, so the streaming services as well as my own collection are going to be a vital way of keeping me sane over the coming months. Sadly there's nothing especially good that's new on the subscription services today. The iPlayer's added Made in Degenham, Mindhorn and The Lady Vanishes (which was preceded on transmission by this Hitch themed episode of Talking Pictures).

Don't forget that Starz Play on Amazon currently has an offer of 99p a month for three months at the mo.  Ends at the end of the month.

Daily Dose of Doctor Who.


Self-Isolation Culture Special: Free Film, Music, Art, Essays, Books and More:
(Brilliant list from The Double Negative) "Stating the blindingly obvious, this isn’t doing much for anybody’s mental health. In fact, it’s serving to heighten anxiety and, in some cases, hysteria. We know this because we recognise it in ourselves. As such, we thought we’d pull together our favourite online entertainment, stories and stuff with which to occupy our minds, eyes and ears over the coming days, weeks and – who knows? – months."

After the Fire, a Chinatown Museum Sifts Through What Survived:
"Families are celebrating hundreds of boxes of heirlooms that were unloaded from the scorched interior of 70 Mulberry Street."

10 of the world’s best virtual museum and art gallery tours:

"The originals are out of reach for now, but you can still see world-class art – without the queues or ticket prices – with an online tour of these famous museums."

Radio 4 programming to inform, educate and entertain during the coming weeks:
"Radio 4 will broadcast new programming to inform listeners and analyse what is happening in the UK and around the globe, as well as feature highlights from the archive during this unprecedented time."

Some Shakespeare.

Shakespeare or bust:
"Busts of the Bard are big business. This Panorama footage of moulder Daniele Landi and his son is hypnotic - like a Pete and Dud sketch directed by Ingmar Bergman. They discuss the popularity of various ornamental busts of famous figures such as Shakespeare."

Today's Album.
