Radnor TV Channel Increasing Classic British Film Broadcasts

Radnor Studio 21 will be airing classic movies from the United Kingdom at 8 p.m. every night of the week.

Radnor Studio 21, the Radnor Township public access television station, will now be running classic movies from the United Kingdom at 8 p.m. every night of the week.

Both Comcast and Verizon cable air channel 21, which is a non-profit corporation based out of its downtown Wayne studio.

According to general manager George Strimel, the channel started airing the British classic films, which were created from the 1930s-1960s, one night a week. They increased it to weekends, and this week have started showing the films every night at 8 p.m.

No other content on the public access channel will be lost, but there will be a slight reshuffling of the schedule, which you can find every week posted on Radnor Patch in the Announcements section under News.

This weekend:

Friday

THE GREAT BRITISH PICTURE SHOW: THE FLAWED HERO: GRAHAM GREENE’S “HEART OF THE MATTER” (UK-1953) with Trevor Howard and Elizabeth Allan (A Tragic Tale set in Colonial Africa) & JOSEPH CONRAD’S “OUTCAST OF THE ISLANDS” (UK-1951) with Ralph Richardson and Trevor Howard (Directed by Carol Reed, another Tragic Tale).

Saturday

CLASSIC CINEMA: “NIGHT TRAIN TO MUNICH” (UK-1940) with Rex Harrison and Margaret Lockwood (Gilliat and Launder Story Set in Nazi Germany).

Sunday

SUNDAY CLASSIC CINEMA: THE FALLEN IDOL” (UK-1948) with Ralph Richardson and Jack Hawkins (A Confused Child and a Murder?, Directed by Carol Reed).

Could not be happier with this expansion of British film offerings by RS21. Well done, George Strimel!

I agree. Radnor 21 is a nice touch for the community. We enjoy watching the old movies as our daughter is also an Anglophile. Break a leg George.

Radnor 21's expansion of British films to 7 days is a great idea...!! When the films started showing earlier on limited nights, I was worried that there would not be a strong enough "market" to continue, especially in that prime time slot.. A lot of people are watching now on week-ends ! Even the British shorts are enjoyed ; ....great job George !! Cheers ! Harvard Wood
