    Anyone know what years the series of Horror films shown on T.V. ran called Monster Movies? I think it was sometime between 1969, and 1971 possibly on Yorkshire T.V. and then a year or so later, and maybe on ITV, Appointment with fear. Not the later 70's, early 80's series of films. I'm looking for the first ones, as it's where I got my interest in all things Universal Horror. A film friend of mine says 1969, but I'm sure we were in 1st year Juniors, so 70/71....?

    If anyone is lucky enough to have the complete run down (possibly from radio/t.v. times) of what was shown and when, if you could post it, that would be quite the ticket...

    By coincidence I watched a documentary on Universal last night but I couldn't tell you when I taped it. However if you're into monster movies then Sky Classics are showing "The Creature from the Black Lagoon" tomorrow (Sunday) from 11.50am -1-15pm.

    You guy's certainly have some info, Thanks for what's been posted up to now. So Monster Movies were 1970, and early in the year, or were they like Anglia, and ran right through to early 1970?? I thought they were on around the Autumn 1970, just shows ya. So it looks like Appointment with fear was 1971, maybe 72...
