Dir: Robin Hardy | 1973 | UK | 84 mins
Cast: Edward Woodward, Christopher Lee, Britt Ekland, Diane Cilento, Ingrid Pitt

Robin Hardy’s seminal, utterly distinctive ‘folk horror’ masterpiece is one of the greatest horror films ever made. Edward Woodward is the uptight policeman sent to a remote Scottish island on an investigation, only to find the islanders, led by laird Summerisle (Christopher Lee) infected by a weird, sensual, mystic devotion to the pagan gods of old. Cultist, anarchic, brilliantly fey; it’s unmissable.

All times listed are the programme start time unless otherwise stated. Films start approx 30 mins after the programme start time.
