Horror Europa with Mark Gatiss
Having covered the development of British and American horror cinema pretty thoroughly in his 2010 series A History of Horror, here Gatiss turns his attention to nearly a century of European horror movies, from 1920's The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari to 2006's Pan's Labyrinth (with nods to even more recent fare, hence my "nearly a century" comment). It's equally as compelling and informative as his earlier series, the only downside being it's a single 90-minute episode -- there's clearly enough to be said here to fill another series.
There's a related article, in which he lists his five favourite European horror movies (one of which isn't even featured in the programme), here.
