TV and Streaming – Monday 23th March 2020

Morning!

Firstly, a big thanks to everyone who viewed yesterday’s list. I hope this is helpful. I admit I watched the brilliant The Lady Vanishes.

Today’s list won’t be as long but hopefully, you’ll be able to find something interesting to watch. Don’t forget from tomorrow, Disney+ hits the UK. Hurry up and get the special price of £49.99 for a year of streaming (From tomorrow it goes up to £59.00).

Here comes the choices. Have a happy Monday! See you tomorrow!
