Welcome back to Class War’s TV guide for the revolutionary couch potato. With the political conference season starting, it is now particularly important to check those schedules rather than just switching on the telly willy-nilly!
The Revolution Will Not Be Televised – 16-22 September
Sat 16 Sept 10pm Bravo – I Predict A Riot. James Brown compares the 2003 anti-war protests with the 1990 Poll Tax riots. Lets hope he also notices which methods worked, and which did not!
10pm ITV4 – The Whicker Man. You will be pleased to note that this is the Edward Woodward original, with no Nicholas Cage to be seen.
Mon 18 Sept 11.20pm BBC2 – Folk Britannia. The rise of folk rock in the 1960s.
Tues 19 Sept 8pm BBC1 – Undercover: Football’s Dirty Secrets. Not much is known about the content of this programme except that Panorama claim to have spent a year filming undercover inside certain Britain’s football clubs.
Weds 20 Sept 7pm History – Great Crimes & Trials. The trial and executions of US anarchists Sacco and Vanzetti.
Thurs 21 Sept 11.20pm BBC2 – The Mark Steel Lectures. Tapeworm Trot Mark Steel is rarely entertaining, but even he should not be able to make Sylvia Pankhurt’s story dull.
Fri 22 Sept 9pm BBC4 – Johnny Cash: The Last Great American. One hour special devoted to the great singer-songwriter. Hopefully with a bit more music than the recent film!
11.35pm BBC2 – Originals. The History of The Fall, and Mark E Smith.
