Just in time for your weekend viewing, here is a list of 30 more telefilm titles that BBC Studios has (re)released from its library on Prime Video US.
If you missed it last month, the article “60 Movies from BBC Studios Now Streaming on Prime Video” featured a list of exactly that — 60 TV movie titles, all dramas, that star award-winning and other well-known British acting talent.
Since I published that piece on August 27, BBC Studios has released (or re-released) 30 more telefilm titles on Prime Video US. Similar to the first list, a number of the drama movies below originally screened as episodes of the BBC anthology series Performance, Screen One, and Screen Two, and more than a quarter of the list consists of television adaptations of novels, plays, and stories. Some of the titles have screened in the US before, while others are being streamed here for the first time.
