Dexter writes “Launching Cult Conversations and Cult Podcast
‘A fresh voice in Cult Entertainment’
Cult Conversations is a new website specialising in interviews with personalities from the Cult TV Industry that can be downloaded and brought on CD. Cult Conversations aims to showcase mainstream shows alongside the lesser niche television programmes, what fall under the cult genre.
We are currently planning a season of interviews with cast members of ‘The Tomorrow People’, ‘Doctor Who’ as well as other actors and creative talents behind some of the UK’s most influential television series.
The Cult Podcast will be posted monthly and will feature reports from the latest Cult television and film events. The podcast’s are available to downloaded from Cult Conversations free of charge.
The first Podcast features interviews with Gerald Harper, Juliet Harmer, Kim Newman, Peter Halliday, Kevin Davies and Michael Hayes and more, recorded at this years ‘Adam Adamant Lives!’ & ‘A for Andromeda’ DVD launch at the NFT. The Podcast is now available to listen to via www.cultpodcast.co.uk
More Podcasts have already been recorded with a report from the Summer
Memorabilia show at the Birmingham NEC, which includes sound bites from Allo Allo’s Guy Siner, Sue Hodge, Arthur Bostrum and Sam Kelly as well as Leslie Grantham (Dirty Den from ‘Eastenders’) and Anna Karen (Olive from ‘On the Buses’).
An uncut version of the podcast is also available on CD (from the website) including 15 minutes of unbroadcast material.
The Trek Movie Report has some video previews as well as a list of stations that will be airing the newly remastered original Star Trek. Also interesting: Apparently none of the stations will get a true HD copy to air. CBS sites lack of storage capacity at the stations and few of them HD-capable, and claim they would when “enough stations” have upgraded – but the stations are saying they want it in HD.
