Classic Comedy With Sony On Saturday 18th

Thursday, January 16th, 2020

Tune in to Sony Movies Classic for a day of classic comedy and guaranteed laughs from 8.35am! Films include one of the Marx Brothers’ finest feasts of nonsense, Duck Soup, at 10.20. That’s followed at 11.45 by another great comedy about a fictitious European nation: Peter Sellers stars – thrice! – in The Mouse That Roared, a hilarious war satire about the Duchy of Grand Fenwick, whose forces inadvertently stumbles across a weapon that could destroy the Earth. The scheming Prime Minister (Sellers) plots with the Grand Duchess (also Sellers) to declare war on the USA, lose the war, and get that foreign aid. Unfortunately, they forget to tell Tully Bascombe (Sellers again), commander of their medieval army. Through a series of unbelievable circumstances, this man does his best and wins the war, much to the Duchy’s dismay.

Then Peter Potter Jnr. (Bob Hope) heads out West to claim the inheritance left to him by his father, only to discover he has been left nothing but debts in Son of Paleface (3.20pm). The day wraps up with the 1971 film version of Dad’s Army at 5.15pm.


What the industry says about US


The Global Listings press schedules are very good. Especially as we have very little space in the TV Guide sections, these are still very useful to us. In addition, the Global Listings TV highlights documents and press reports are also a great way for us to make choices of what TV programmes to feature.

We use both the Global Listings press schedules (in Word) and their XML files. The programme descriptions are rather good and not too long, which is helpful. We use their text verbatim and import it direct into our database.
