On Screen Sounds

Season of the Witch screening

Note that I independently write and research everything in this article. But it may contain affiliate links.

It's some time ahead, so you might want to make a note in your diary for Wednesday 19th May, when the Flipside (via the BFI) will be screening The Season of the Witch in London.

Sound familiar? Of course it does – the song by Julie Driscoll and Brian Auger. But this screening is actually a rarely-seen, location-shot BBC play (a former Wednesday play), with Julie Driscoll playing Meredith, dropping out of the automated world of the typing pool and heading off on a quest for 'good vibes and personal freedom' – ending up in the underground haunts and clubs of Brighton, as well as hooking up with hobos Jake and Shaun (Paul Nicholas and Robert Powell). Music of course, is by Brian Auger.

Also showing at the NFT1 on the same bill is some footage of Brian and Julie onm both Top of the Pops and Frist on Sunday. Tickets presumably on sale soon – get in touch with them for more details. In the meantime, enjoy this video of the song below.
