221: Obituary Show

Welcome to the first of our two At The Flicks year start shows.

At the Flicks · 221: Obituary Show

Year start I hear you ask, but it’s almost Easter! A fact we cannot argue with (although Neil tried). However, our shows, like the At The Flicks team, can be compared to a fine wine. Aged to perfection and a perfect accompaniment to your film going menu. Of course, some members (or bottles if you prefer), have aged more than others and come in smaller containers.

Now you, dear listeners, might say we are simply late. And that is the subject of the show – the late obituaries that held special meaning for the At The Flicks team from 2022. Normally this would just be part of the year start show. However we had so much to say, so much eulogising of our heroes, that we did not want to trim down any of our comments. So, we made it a special show in its own right.

Just who are we talking about:

  • Philip Baker Hall
  • Raymond Briggs
  • Robbie Coltrane
  • Mike Hodges
  • Ray Liotta

Each member of the team made a selection that was personal to them.

As well as those illustrious names, we have our own roll call of greats and some of their achievements.

In short, this show is the At The Flicks tribute to some of the great names that passed in 2022. Enjoy our celebration of their lives.

Until part 2 of our year start show, which we promise to deliver before Christmas, we’ll see you At The Flicks.
