The Backstage team have been inundated with requests for recommendations about what to watch while we are all stuck inside - so we thought we'd do a special podcast sharing our best tips on what movies, boxsets, and documentaries to catch up on!
Claire, Katie, and Stevie talk through their favourite 80s films, must-see TV, and uplifting documentaries that will hopefully entertain us - and whoever we're sharing our screens with!
Please subscribe if you like the podcast, and we'd love to hear from you about what you watched and what else you would recommend - get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
