Hi Everyone,


Time to announce this Sunday's chat.




at 7.00 p.m. UK Time (notice the new time)


2.00 p.m. ET

1.00 p.m. CT

12.00 noon MT

11.00 a.m. PT

10.00 a.m. AT


If you have any comments about the new time please post them.


The topic for the chat which will last between 1 and 2 hours is :




Remember those Saturday afternoons when you thrilled to the exploits of

Flash Gordon, Zorro, Captain Marvel, superman, Sherlock Holmes, Charlie

Chan, Superman etc.


This chat is a celebration of those fun serials from the silents to the

50s also the second feature series movies like Holmes, Chan, Moto,

Bulldog Drummond, Dick Tracy and many others.


We will possibly consider the history of the serial and the B movie

through the specialists like Republic and Monogram. How entertaining are

these movies now ? Do they provide a window into the past in that they

are more regular movie fare than the big studio releases and so-called

classics ? Did any TV series or movies follow in the tradition of the

cliffhanger serials ?


Hope to "see" you in the chat room on Sunday,


Take care,


Derek (Classic Movie Man)


PS : After this chat I'm considering reducing the official chats to

fortnightly. The Radio Show will be one week the chat the next. I'm also

thinking of asking the members what you what to chat about and I'm

prepared to move the Sunday chat to a bit later in the day if it will help

make it easier for people to attend.
