Heathers 30 years on.

With Antonia Quirke.

Antonia talks to Heathers director Michael Lehmann, as the dark high school comedy is back in cinemas for its 30th anniversary. Catherine Bray and Angie Errigo trace its influence, from Mean Girls to The Craft.

Kevin Brownlow talks about the film he began as a 17 year old and finished 8 years later. It Happened Here, which imagined what would have happened if the Nazis had invaded Britain, was shot on Sundays with a cast of non-professional actors and passers-by, and was funded by the meagre wages from his lowly office job.
