The BBC iplayer is showing the classic New Hollywood film, In the heat of the Night (1967).
The film is a classic civil rights movie which places a small-town Southern American town against a visiting African-American detective. He doesn’t want to be there, but he’s stuck passing through and gets caught-up in a murder. Sidney Poitier stars, and there is a terrific jazzy soundtrack by Quincy Jones.
Also, there is quite a lot of train action…
