  2. Any Pakistani film or drama ???????????

  3. Nothing coming up as far as I know.

    As the listings above show, mainstream Hindi films from Mumbai dominate the scheduling of South Asian films on Channel 4.

    The last time Pakistani films were shown was October 2009 in a short three-film ‘Cinema Pakistan’ season, and I’ve added the details above.

  4. New autumn 2011 filmi season just announced for Ch4, premiering first with Love Aaj Zal

    • That’s great news, I’d given up after Channel 4 said they had no plans to show any more Bollywood films this year. Thanks for the tip.
