Reel Britannia

Aug 11, 2021

Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British movies ...with just a hint of professionalism.

At last, with our 100th episode celebrations out the way, Scott and Steven are joined once again by Mark from The Good The Bad and the Odd podcast, and author of ‘Quatermass In Television And Movies’, for the first movie in our long awaited Hammer horror retrospective.

Join us we take a look at The Quatermass Xperiment (1955) starring Brian Donlevy, and featuring Lionel Jeffries, Jack Warner, Thora Hird and Sam Kydd.

In the countryside of London, a rocket crashes on a farm and Professor Bernard Quatermass and Scotland Yard Inspector Lomax arrive in the spot. The rocket was launched by Prof. Quatermass with the astronauts Victor Carroon, Greene and Reichebheim; however only Carroon is found very sick in the cabin. He is transported to a private clinic to stay under observation despite the protests of his wife Mrs. Judith Carroon. She bribes a nurse to bring Carroon to her and she finds that he is transforming into a monster. Carroon escapes, killing people and animals during his metamorphosis while the Scotland Yard is hunting him down and Dr. Quatermass discovers that his process is an alien invasion.

“There's no room for personal feelings in science, Judith!”
