    Did anybody notice that the Beeb, in their infinite wisdom, removed and re-edited the strobing effect from the montage scene?

    The Performance Channel (Sky 271) is continuing to show vintage films every day at around 2 a.m. (their last transmission of the night). Most titles are the same ones that were revived last year on the now defunct "Matinee movies" and "Bad movies Channels" but the presentation of the films on Performance makes them worth a second look - "Riverbeat" (1954) (John Bentley) and "Bond of fear" (1956 with Dermot Walsh) both had introductory Australian film certification titles shown! Also, the on - screen logo on Performance is pretty unobtrusive - a single "P" in the top left hand corner of the screen, which is almost invisible if the colour is turned down when viewing. As well as the late night slot seven days a week there is also a vintage film slot at 8 p.m. on Monday evenings. Here's hoping the channel continues to survive - it's a free to air channel so is not part of any Sky package although broadcasting via satellite.



    Best wishes
