Saturday night’s BBC 3 schedule offers a peculiar endurance test for the insomniac film fan. The channel will be screening Ridley Scott’s 1982 classic Blade Runner in its latest iteration, the director’s Final Cut (we’ll see about that) at 11:45. The interesting thing is that the Beeb will also be showing Dangerous Days – the essential documentary on the making of the film, which accompanied the film’s most recent DVD release. This will show at 3:20 AM, lasting until 5AM on Sunday morning. If you’re planning to watch both, and maybe even the episodes of Russell Howard’s Good News and Lip Service which break them up, I salute your masochism (and apparent unwillingness to just buy the DVD).
