Local Hero on BBC Two’s Culture Show

In honour of the fact that my post in February covering a 25th Anniversary screening of Local Hero is still being viewed a fair amount – hello to Yaron in Israel who posted a comment just the other day! – I thought I’d give a mention to a feature coming up tonight on BBC Two’s superb arts series, The Culture Show.

In this episode, film critic extraordinaire Mark Kermode (please subscribe to his Radio Five podcast if you enjoy film even in the slightest) takes Local Hero director Bill Forsyth back to Pennan, where the movie was filmed, to discuss the making of this classic.

Kermode has written about the piece on the BBC website and it sounds like it’s worth watching.

There are also some photos on the Culture Show Flickr group.
