Movietime is a programme broadcast on BCB Radio, at 18:00 GMT on a Wednesday evening once every four weeks. Upcoming transmission dates are October 17, November 13, and December 12, 2012.
The show is edited and presented by Karl Dallas, who has been involved in film criticism for over half a century. As a young freelance he wrote for the then classic Picturegoer magazine, edited by Connery Chappell, and in that role was one of the first to recognise the talents of a young Marilyn Monroe in her first, uncredited, movie appearance.
Originally available only in audio, Movietime is now also produced in video format, allowing trailers and other media to be viewed on YouTube and elsewhere (because of YouTube limitations, the 30-minute programme has to be split into two segments). Here are some video versions of the show.
