Suggestion For TCM Movie Programers


Recommended Posts

Is it just happenstance, or is there a "good" reason why close proximity repeat viewings of movies are arranged the way they are?


*Suggestion For TCM Movie Programers*


When a movie is scheduled to play twice within a 30 day period, for recent example:

The Loneliness of The Long Distance Runner , and Splendor In The Grass

and one of those viewings is on Saturday evenings "Essentials" it seems to me that the Essentials viewing should take precedent over the non-Essentials viewing, rather than have the first viewing precede the Essentials presentation.


"The Essentials" with Robert Osborn & Alex Baldwin allows much more time to provide background information about a particular film, and whets the appetite for an additional viewing. It leaves viewers in a better position to recommend the film to others and provides a nearby chance to see it again on the second replay.


Can anybody explain why the scheduling is like the way it is regarding the above?


Does anybody agree or disagree with this suggestion?


If you disagree, please elaborate.
