Don't Faint! We've Reached Over 1000 Signatures!

More fantastic news for our campaign to Bring Back BBC2's Horror Double Bills! Thanks to everyones hard work and support we have now achieved our target of 1000 signatures in our petition! This is an amazing achievement and we can now set our sights even higher - let's see if we can reach 2000!!! This will really make the BBC realise that we are all fed up with the lack of regular primetime horror programming on British television. Don't forget to keep sending those emails and letters to BBC Points of View and the Radio Times as well as heading to the BBC complaints website to make your feelings known.
More great news on the UK horror TV front! In October, BBC4 will be screening a three part documentary "History of Horror" fronted by Mark Gatiss. The first episode will cover Hollywood's Golden Age of horror of the 30's and 40's. Episode two concentrates on the reinvention of the horror film, with it's greater emphasis on sex and gore as exemplified by Britain's Hammer Films. Finally, the last episode looks at the gritty new wave of horror cinema which began with George Romero's "Night of the Living Dead" in 1968. The documentary will be supported by various horror movie screenings which have yet to be anounced. The provisional airdates for "History of Horror" are Monday 11th, 18th and 25th October.
