  1. The May schedule is available now: <http://www.tcm.com/schedule/monthly.html?tz=est&sdate=2016-5-01> .
  2. To convert a video tape to DVD you need 1) a working VCR and 2) a device that will convert the VCR signal to digital format. #2 can be a DVR (some of us have Magnavoxes or other brands with hard disks), a video capture card inside a regular computer, or an external device that plugs into a computer. I have used both a DVR and a card inside my PC. The nice thing about all of these methods is that they also allow you to record and make DVDs from new broadcasts by connecting your choice of device #2 to your cable box (or cable, or antenna), though copy-protected broadcasts may require worka
  3. The Dustin Hoffman version of "Death of a Salesman" was mentioned earlier in this thread. ThisTV will broadcast it several times later this month. If IMDb is correct about the running time (listed at 136 minutes), ThisTV apparently either has a slightly edited version or will fast-scroll the closing credits to fit the 3-hour time block. Broadcast schedule for the Washington DC area: Fri, 11/20, 12:30 AM - 3:30 AM Sat, 11/21, 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM Mon, 11/23, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
  4. Movieplex showed A Separation at least twice during September. That channel may still hold the rights, in which case it is likely to show up again. However, it's not on either the November or December schedule.
  5. Apologies for starting this unnecessary thread. I thought I was searching for the July schedule. Then I thought I had found it. Then I typed "June", which at least matched the info I was staring at. What can I say? It's almost midnight.
  6. The June 2015 schedule is available here (at the moment): http://www.tcm.com/schedule/monthly.html?tz=est&sdate=2015-6-01
  7. The June schedule is now visible: http://www.tcm.com/schedule/monthly.html?tz=est&sdate=2015-6-01
  8. I remember really liking Martin Sheen in "The Execution of Private Slovik", a made-for-TV movie broadcast in 1974. I hope to see it again someday, though I'm sure I'll still find it disturbing.
  9. The February 2015 schedule is available here: http://www.tcm.com/schedule/monthly.html?tz=est&sdate=2015-2-01 It's heavy on repeats, as always for February, but I'm very glad for an opportunity to catch these movies on TV in uncut form: Deliverance Barry Lyndon The Great Santini The Emigrants Running on Empty The Fisher King
  10. A bunch of Ingmar Bergman movies are slotted for the night of December 3. Haven't checked to see whether they are the same ones previously scheduled but not shown, but I was glad to see Through a Glass Darkly listed.
  11. The December schedule is available here: http://www.tcm.com/schedule/monthly.html?tz=est&sdate=2014-12-01 . Edited to correct link to schedule, which is active as of the time of this post (5:20 PM EDT).
  12. Pather Panchali definitely is in the clear, because TCM showed it back in October as part of the "Story of Film" series. That's why I'd prefer Apu this time. For now I guess Apu will have to stay on my "get-from-Netflix-the-next-time-I-join" list. ETA: One curious thing about this schedule is that Avalon, which TCM has scheduled on September 3, is due to be shown on Movies! on September 2. Roman Holiday has been shown on both networks recently, but not just one day apart.
  13. Although there are many interesting films that will be new to me, I was sorry to see that The World of Apu has disappeared from the schedule. This is at least the second time that particular film has appeared on a preliminary schedule but not on the final one, so now I'm wondering whether there's a difficult-to-resolve rights issue.
  14. Actually, I'm pretty sure that it has. It was on the schedule for June 7, 2010. I can't say for sure that it was broadcast on that date, but I have a recording of the movie, and I don't know where I would have gotten it, if not from TCM.
  15. Public Service Announcement Two posters have alluded to the high cost of shipping videotapes they'd like to give away. It's actually not that expensive. The trick is to take the box(es) to the local post office and ask for "Media Mail". Just today I sent 18 lb. of books across the country for $10.63. Eighteen pounds of videotapes (or DVDs or music CDs) would cost the same, to any US destination. Forty pounds would cost $20.75. Correspondence isn't allowed in Media Mail, nor are magazines/newspapers, videogames, or software (even if recorded on tape, CD, or DVD). The Media Mai
