Whilst the two day Alien Nation: A Conference on British Science Fiction, Horror and Fantasy at Northumbria University in Newcastle costs a shocking £150, I am assuming the coinciding film season at local cinema Star & Shadow wont be as dear.
"A celebration of the freaky, spooky and obscure side of UK television drama. Programmed by James Leggott (Lecturer in Film and TV, Northumbria University) from the darker corners of the BBC archives, with special guest introductions, this is a rare chance to catch some of the most haunting telefantasy ever transmitted.
Expect angelic encounters, sacrificial offerings, gothic nightmares, dinner parties from hell, a very frightened Jane Asher, BBC Radiophonic weirdness… and Michael Parkinson being possessed by an evil spirit."
