    Sky Classics are showing this 1927 Hitchcock silent starring Ivor Novello as a slightly elderly public schoolboy this coming Saturday, 6th October, at 12.15pm and 7pm. No information yet on whether it's the newly restored version screened a couple of weeks ago at the BFI but it seems likely.

    But hopefully with the score by John Sweeney rather than the 'vocal orchestra' I saw, who sounded as if the badger cull had begun early. And at least on telly the, musicians won't be standing in front of the screen (and there will be a mute option). It is a great film though

    Sky has changed the time of this evening's screening to 6.30-8.30pm according to the programme guide this morning - which seems a very long slot for an 83m film.

    Wow! Sky's HD BFI restoration ran 110 minutes. Far longer than all previously reported running times.

    Yes and it looked as amazing as it did on the big screen. The Lodger tomorrow.
