This Time with Alan Partridge
We’re not sure how long the tradition of the Sunday night movie has been running in South Africa, but it’s become part of our culture. Sitting down with the family to watch the M-Net Sunday night movie is about having one last bit of fun before Monday. And the sound of the end-credits of Carte Blanche is its calling card.
We do live in the age of streaming, so if you miss the Sunday night movie, DStv Premium subscribers can watch it on DStv Now.
(It’s worth noting that not all the Sunday night movies quite make the cut as a Plum Pick, but we include them all here for you because they’re always fan faves.)
