BBC's Forbidden Films

A list dedicated to the films and documentaries shown in BBC2’s Forbidden Weekend (1995) and Forbidden Season (1997). Many of which (much like Moviedrome) featured introductions by Alex Cox and Mark Cousins, the filmmakers themselves or occasionally tidbits (called Talking X's) from fans like Jarvis Cocker and John Peel.

Where possible I've included the introductions in the notes.
Listed in order of broadcast.
