The result @BFI 19 ICO Archive Day: The Long Memory UK 1952. Dir Robert Hamer. With John Mills, Elizabeth Sellars, John McCallum, Eva Bergh. 92min. 35mm. PG This rarely seen noir, written and directed by Robert Hamer, has more than a hint of the dark thrillers emanating from 1930s France. John Mills channels Jean Gabin in the role of a man wrongly imprisoned, whose pursuit of those who framed him takes him from the atmospheric mud flats of North Kent to London’s docklands.

Session 2: 120min The annual round-up of recent rediscoveries returns to BFI Southbank and although (at time of going to press) some titles are still to be verified, we’re delighted to announce that Session 1 has an emphasis on comedy and will feature a missing episode of one of the 1960’s best-loved and most controversial sitcoms, Till Death Us Do Part: Sex Before Marriage (BBC 1967). For fans of TV horror, Session 2 will feature a recently disinterred Late Night Horror episode, The Corpse Can’t Play (BBC 1970). Please keep checking the BFI website as titles will be revealed as they’re confirmed, but regular visitors will know how popular these events are, and how much of the material is consistently fascinating.
