BBC relaunches film show

Winkleman, Leigh to co-host 'Film 2010'

LONDON — BBC1’s flagship film show, “Film 2010,” will return in October with a pair of new faces, as well as a fresh format.

BBC regular Claudia Winkleman will co-host alongside film critic and journalist Danny Leigh. The couple replace Jonathan Ross after his 11-year reign ended earlier this year.

Breaking with its former taped incarnation, the show will air live and run for 40 minutes — 10 minutes longer than before — and will feature more debate and viewer interaction than in the past.

Leigh said, “We’ll have something for everyone, from the casual Wednesday night passer-by, to the most well-informed and passionate film fanatic.”

Regular contributors will include Financial Times film journalist Antonia Quirke and Chris Hewitt, news editor of Empire, the world’s biggest-selling consumer film magazine.

The show, which has been running since 1971, will relaunch in sync with the bow of the London Film Festival.
