So, finally, this is our first full episode, featuring our analysis of the 1967 American classic "In the Heat of the Night". Remember to watch the film first if you don't want any spoilers!
One of the original reasons we picked this film is because it stars the great Sidney Poitier, and the original name of this podcast was going to be "Sydney Poitiers on Film"; being that I live in Sydney and Derek lives in Poitiers.
But as it turns out this film is also very topical, with racism and policing at it's centre, issues that have this year been second only to Covid-19 in their currency.
So we hope you enjoy our first episode, please let us know what you think, and my humblest apologies for my broken voice in this one, I was suffering from a cold (not covid) when we recorded it. Derek's voice on the other hand sounds immaculate.
