That’s a very long list with many “new” to the blog movies. To check the films in all the other sections go here where you're going to find a search form that if you leave all the fields blank and change the one named “progamme” for each program name, then all the films will appear below.

Let’s hope that eventually they will have some information about the movies to find which are interesting; I’ll be checking and when available I will post some additional information for the interesting movies.
