Talking Pictures TV (TPTV) is a British free-to-air vintage film nostalgia television channel. It launched on 26 May 2015, on Sky channel 343 (Now 328).[1] It is on air for 24 hours a day, and concentrates on older British films, both classics and B-films,[3] but the schedule also includes some American films, straight-to-video programmes, cinema shorts, and period home movies of British locations.

Background[edit]

TPTV is a family business, founded by Sarah Cronin-Stanley, and is run by her with assistance from her father, former producer/editor Noel Cronin, and her husband Neill Stanley.[3] A wide range of movies from different genres are shown, including horror, comedy, drama and thriller films. In-house productions are also shown, as are items from the Cronins' own back catalogue,[4] including Noel's Dandelion Distribution, as well as series from the Southern TV franchise archive, and early American television shows. Movies are usually copied directly from film reels; damaged reels from the catalogue are often replaced by donations, either from online, viewers or available libraries.[5]

One of the aims of the founders was to maintain the history of British cinema; it was said to have been in the making since ca. 2007.[6] Classic movies were originally shown on terrestrial channels, such as BBC and Channel 4,[5] but had declined in the 2000s, with the most well-known of films occasionally getting aired. Cronin-Stanley explained to the Watford Observer in 2016 that "People were interested in the big titles but he [her father Noel] wanted to save the smaller, more obscure titles, from getting lost".[4] However, television networks rejected their pitches, unconvinced that it would be of high demand,[5] so they decided to set up the channel independently.[4]

Sponsorship[edit]

Merchandise, Renown Pictures[edit]

For over 20 years, Cronin-Stanley and Cronin have been patrons to a DVD membership club, The Renown Film Club, for fans of B-film classics.[1] Cronin had worked for The Rank Organisation and Central Office of Information, and bought the rights to several libraries that owned films that air on TPTV,[4] such as much of the Southern Television library, and originally licensed them out to terrestrial channels.[3] Many of the films aired on Talking Pictures TV are available to buy on DVD, often sold as compilations under different genres, through the distributing company,[7] both online and through the Renown's telephone service. Each DVD set is full of films made between the 1930s and 1960s, and also include special features, such as interviews and history. Other merchandise is also sold on the website, such as mugs, clothing, biographies, and calendars (available to buy in December for the new year), often branded under Talking Pictures TV's name.

The Renown Film Festival[edit]

Since 2014, the channel's producers created the Renown Film Festival, which celebrates classic British film, featuring guest appearances by actors whose films have been aired, as well as historians, who give interviews; there are also screenings for films that were once considered lost, and memorabilia available to buy and be autographed by the actors. It occurs annually in February, and tickets are advertised on both TPTV's website and the channel. Actors that have appeared on the guest lists include Jess Conrad (who reunited with the remaining cast of The Boys in 2017),[8] Rita Tushingham,[9] Brian Murphy, Melvyn Hayes, and Derren Nesbitt.[9] The festival takes place in Hertfordshire, such as Watersmeet Theatre, Rickmansworth[9] and St. Albans' The Albans Arena,[10] but 2019 will be the first year to have more than one festival in a year; October 2019 will be the Renown Film's 6th Festival of Film at the Stockport Plaza,[11] which will also feature special guests, film screenings, and memorabilia.

Podcast[edit]

A spin-off podcast named The Talking Pictures TV Podcast was announced in December 2018[12] by Adam Roche,[13] the creator of the podcasts The Secret History of Hollywood and Attaboy Clarence,[13] and began broadcasting on 3 February 2019. Each episode is uploaded monthly to coincide with TPTV's schedule releases and invites the audience to review movies and television programmes that will broadcast on the channel during that month. Its first episode became the most popular podcast in the UK iTunes chart within roughly five hours.[14]

Availability[edit]

The channel was initially only available via digital satellite on the Sky platform in the United Kingdom.[1] Since 15 September 2015, it has also been available on Freeview channel 81. It became available on Freesat channel 306 in February 2016,[2] and on Virgin Media on 1 June 2017. On Freeview it was initially broadcast only in standard definition (SDTV) on HD multiplex and could only be received by Freeview HD equipment.[2] From 30 November 2017, it became available, to those within coverage (90 percent of UK households), on any TV capable of receiving Freeview.[15] Since 2 January 2018, it has also been available in the afternoon (12:00–18:00) on Freeview Channel 7 in five areas: Cambridge, Lancashire, Manchester, Oxfordshire and Solent.[16] The channel has a weekly audience of about 2 million.[17]

Controversy[edit]

The regulator Ofcom has warned the channel about the use of obsolete racial terms in its programming on a handful of occasions,[17] including an episode of Granada Television's A Family at War, originally broadcast in the early 1970s, shown by TPTV in the hour just before the 9pm watershed, and an uncensored interview with Joan Turner during her appearance on the talk show Tell Me Another.[18] Cronin-Stanley told The Times in February 2018: "Ofcom say we need to advise people before they watch something that it may contain outdated racial stereotyping, but I would say that’s babysitting our audience".[17] However, later in 2018, warning notices had started to appear just before such programmes began.

Broadcast output[edit]

Films[edit]

A list of selected films shown on Talking Pictures TV:

Television series[edit]

Talking Pictures TV features several classic television series from American broadcasters ABC, CBS, and NBC, as well as British series from Southern Television productions for the ITV network. Many of the American television shows were produced by Four Star Television.

Other[edit]

Talking Pictures TV also features several films from the series featuring Old Mother Riley, and from the British Film Institute's (BFI) archives, including several significant documentaries, and a considerable number of Children's Film Foundation productions, named under a series segment Glimpses.[3] Its intention is for both nostalgia and education, as well as reminding the audience of the past; some footage is donated by viewers.[5] The series is the most popular original content on the channel and its compilation DVD is the most popular buy on Renown Film's website.[97]

The Take Two series was presented by Elstree historian Morris Bright, and occasionally Robert Ross and/or the channel creators, who interview famous actors whose films and programming is airing on the channel, such as Nanette Newman, Angela Douglas, Rita Tushingham,[98] Sylvia Sims, Michael Craig,[99] Shirley Eaton, Sally Thomsett, Jack Smethurst, Jenny Hanley, Norman Eshley, Valerie Leon, Madeline Smith, Marc Sinden, and Janette Scott;[100] a few of them recorded station idents for the channel.[101][102][103][104][105][106][107][108] An interview with A Family at War creator John Finch was also aired,[109] as well as Neil Sean Meets..., an interviewing series presented by Neil Sean, who has interviewed historians and celebrities of the mid-20th century, such as Tommy Steele,[110] Roger Moore[111] and Eden Kane. Interviews from 2018 onwards have been filmed in the Cinema Museum in the wake of the museum's foreclosure announcement;[112] the interviewees there include Mark Lester, George Layton,[113] Anita Harris, Sid James's daughter Reina,[114] Anneke Wills,[115] and Peter Butterworth's son Tyler.[116]

Themed days[edit]

The channel has featured themed days, such as "An Afternoon with Liz Fraser"[117] (14 August 2016), "1960s Day",[118] "Sophia Loren Evening"[119] (20 September 2016), "Music Hall Monday", "Diana Dors Day"[120] (14 May 2017), and "An Afternoon with Patricia Dainton",[67] in which the actress came out of retirement to provide introductions to her films. "Laurel and Hardy Month"[121] aired their short films and feature-length productions throughout September 2017[122] and their movies continue to be shown.[3] "Ronald Colman Season"[123] occurred throughout November and December 2016, airing movies such as The Devil to Pay!, Bulldog Drummond, and Raffles.[124][125] 15 February 2018 was "Sam Kydd Day",[126] with showings of a handful of his movies and television appearances, excerpts from his diaries and anecdotes of his life from his son Jonathan.[127] 15 March 2019 was "John Gregson Day" which featured movies and television that starred/featured the actor, along with interviews with his family members and remaining cast members of his filmography.[128] There have also been special guests that host their favourite vintage media that has appeared on the channel, such as Danny Baker[129] and Vic Reeves.[130]
