As for the movies that featured in the early days YouTube gives us some idea, 'The Late Nancy Irving’ and ‘Sweet Scent of Death’ are mentioned suggesting that they aired the feature length episodes of Hammer House of Mystery and Suspense from 1984. In my quest to find out more I turned to vintage issues of TV Guide because the main British listing magazines didn't start publishing cable and satellite listings until 1991. Here is an ongoing list of episodes that I hope to keep open and update accordingly.
