A COMPLETE LISTING OF THE SATURDAY NIGHT HORROR DOUBLE BILL SCREENINGS ON BBC2

This list was compiled and originally posted by Paul Durkan on the Yahoo group MastersofHorror. We have taken the liberty of sharing it here because we like it and, for a particular age group, the horror double bill was an education. If memory serves us right, the horror double bill season would play at the end of the football season, thereby avoiding a clash with Match of the Day on BBC1.

If you have a fond memory of the BBC2 horror double bill and would like to share it, please drop us a line here


Says Paul: The BBC 2 Saturday night HORROR DOUBLE BILLS ran each summer from 1975 to 1981.

Sometimes the films ran immediately after one another, sometimes they were seperated by programmes such as cricket. One of the great thrills for me was to hear what was being shown the following week.

Remember this was a time when you had to stay up late to catch these films or wait years later to see them again - video recorders belonged to the realms of science-fiction back then. As for the internet...
