Mental health TV shows - Sat 20/2/2020 to Fri 26/2/2020


Saturday

2.55pm, Captain Newman M.D. (1963), ITV 4. In 1944, an Army doctor is in charge of a neuropsychiatric ward at an Army Air Corps hospital in Arizona, and he must deal with a variety of tough cases.



Sunday

11:30am, Dr Sanjay Gupta, the CNN news channel. General health magazine show, often has mental health items



5.25pm, Framing Britney Spears, Sky Documentaries. Exploring the legal battle surrounding the pop superstar's controversial conservatorship (the power of her decision making has been handed to her father) due to her mental health difficulties.

(It seems that fans of this New York Times funded and widely publicised documentary unwittingly have all the credibility of the people who booed The Daily Mail at Princess Diana's funeral when they saw her sons walking behind the coffin but who now boo one of those sons and his wife at the behest of The Daily Mail - newspapers are like that - Britney Spears was point blank being manipulated at the behest of the media and her pesky father took away that golden goose in order to protect her).



9pm, Columbo - Prescription Murder (1968), 5 USA. A psychiatrist uses a patient he is having an affair with to help him kill his wife, but his perfect alibi may come apart at the hands of a seemingly befuddled LAPD lieutenant.



10.15pm, Nightingale (2014), Sky Atlantic. A lonely war veteran psychologically unravels ahead of an old friend's impending visit.



Monday night

1am, My Crazy Ex, Lifetime channel.



2.30am, Tales That Witness Madness, Horror channel. Several short horror movies.



2.50am, Gaslight, TCM. After the death of her famous opera-singing aunt, Paula Alquist (Ingrid Bergman) is sent to study in Italy to become a great opera singer as well. While there she falls in love with the charming Gregory Anton (Charles Boyer). They return to London and Paula begins to notice strange goings-on: missing pictures, strange footsteps in the night, and gaslights that dim without being touched. As she fights to retain her sanity, her new husband's intentions come into question.

(The movie which gives us the term "gaslighting")



Tuesday

12pm, Van Gogh - An Exclusive View - From Tate Britain, Sky Arts. The troubled painter


8.30pm, The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin, BBC 4. The start of the 1970's sitcom series (just 21 episodes). Reggie Perrin is suffering from a mid-life crisis, and so tries to escape his dreary life.

11pm, Marina Abramovic Takes Over TV, Sky Arts. The performance artist. Her work explores body art, endurance art and feminist art, the relationship between the performer and audience, the limits of the body, and the possibilities of the mind.

Friday

3pm, Star Trek Voyager - The Fight, Syfy. Aliens revive the latent schizophrenia gene of Chakotay the Native American crew member.


9pm, Nijinsky, Talking Pictures. Biopic of the Russian ballet dancer. He was in and out of psychiatric hospitals and asylums due to schizophrenia.

(Yes there was a famous racehorse named after him - like Shergar it easily won lots of big races in the same year and then was quickly put out to stud)



Daily

7.05am, Frasier, Channel 4. The psychiatrist abandons his bar-propping in Boston (a heavily Irish descendant city in the north eastern USA) in favour of presenting a radio show in Seattle (a more Hippie influenced city in the north west).
