This Autumn Film 2010 is returning to BBC ONE, presented by Claudia Winkleman and newly announced co-host Danny Leigh

Leigh, a film critic and journalist, currently writes a weekly column for the online version of The Guardian.  He and Winkleman, who hosts a weekly arts show on BBC Radio 2, will help to transition the format of the show from monologue into discussion and debate.  The hit show, which is approaching its 40th anniversary, will be filmed live for the first time and will feature special appearances by actors, filmmakers, and other renowned film critics. The live show will also cover footage of major movie events across the globe.

The successful series began in 1972 as Film 72 with presenter and respected film critic Barry Norman, and in 1998 BBC star Jonathan Ross took over as host until his decision to leave the BBC earlier this year. 

Antonia Quirke, a successful novelist and journalist who currently writes about film for the Financial Times, will also be a regular contributor to the new season, as will Empire magazine’s News Editor, Chris Hewitt 

The show has been extended to a running time of 40 minutes each week, and its launch will coincide with the 54th BFI London Film Festival.  It looks like it’s going to be a very exciting season for all of the film fanatics out there!
