Episode 1970: Murph ‘N’ Mal’s Movie Club, Fergie’s Amazon Doc, Frances Murphy’s TV Guide
The news has been pretty grim over the last 24 hours, and since lockdown looks set to continue for another couple of months after all, we might as well recommend a few movies for you. It’s the return of Murph ‘n’ Mal’s Movie Club, with ‘The Hustler’, and ‘Breaking Away’ on the agenda.
'The Hustler' (1961) Paul Newman originates his iconic 'Fast Eddie' Felson in this film of An up-and-coming pool player who plays a long-time champion in a single high-stakes match.

We also ponder what might end up in Alex Ferguson’s new Amazon documentary, directed by his son Jason – and whether his parenting skills will be up for debate. There’s also a tearful farewell to Australia for Serena, perhaps for the last time, and of course Frances Murphy’s TV Guide to the Sporting Weekend.

Finished this superb book last night. If you listened to ‘Where Is George Gibney?’ you’ll already have a sense of how brilliant @trickearney is. #AboveWater is a triumph; raw & heartbreaking yet full of hope & strength & love. It’s also beautifully written. Get your copy now? pic.twitter.com/DGder39T54
