||For decades, the British cinemagoing experience was dominated by the double bill. You could enjoy two films, sometimes in the most eclectic pairing, for the price of one with the interesting bit in the middle. Network's DOUBLE BILL range replicates this retro viewing experience with some classic films, contemporary adverts, trailers and more.
DOUBLE BILL: All Night Long | Ballad in Blue
All Night Long: Patrick McGoohan and Keith Michell star in this powerful psychological drama which deftly re-interprets Shakespeare's Othello via the beating, syncopated heart of East London's early-sixties jazz scene.
Ballad in Blue: Making his only major film appearance, legendary soul singer, musician and composer Ray Charles helps transform the lives of a blind boy and his widowed mother in this poignant, uplifting film drama set in mid-1960s London.
DOUBLE BILL: Tarka the Otter | The Belstone Fox
Tarka the Otter: Narrated by Peter Ustinov, this captivating adaptation of Henry Williamson's famous novel is widely regarded as one of the greatest nature-themed films of all time.
The Belstone Fox: Combining exquisite imagery of both landscape and wildlife - and with fine performances from a top-line cast including Eric Porter, Jeremy Kemp, Oscar nominee Rachel Roberts and Bill Travers - The Belstone Fox is a captivating film for the whole family.
