TV and Streaming – Tuesday 7th April 2020

Morning!

I think we were all shocked last night when the news came through that Boris Johnson was taken into intensive care. No matter of your political leanings, I think we should all wish him a speedy recovery. Also, we said goodbye to Honor Blackman. The actress who had the cheekiest name for a Bond Girl, Pussy Galore, in the best Bond film, Goldfinger.

Back to today and a nice collection of movies for you to view. A lot of the TV companies are repeating their films throughout the week. If there is an outstanding film that you may have missed on the first screening, I will give it a second nod.

Stay safe, stay inside and Happy Tuesday!
