I’ve been meaning to write about “Film School,” the engaging new documentary series from the Independent Film Channel that follows four wannabe directors through their final year at New York University.

Tonight’s episode (9:30 on IFC) is a great jumping-in point, that is if you enjoy jumping into boiling pots of water.

“Film School” immerses us in the seemingly unending details that these four must manage if they’re to get their student project done in time for the school’s film festival. Money, dependable colleagues and a life outside of making the film are in short supply.

Filmmaking is not unlike making TV shows, but unlike TV film has a way of demanding Something Great, even from these first-timers. That expectation, and the $40,000-a-year cost of film school, are an unholy load on their shoulders. You can see each of them being worn down almost from the get-go.

“You have an incredibly low maintenance thing going here,” she fumes.

Then there’s Vincenzo, a likable Italian with the cinematic surname of Tripodo, who has made the mistake of entrusting crucial details of his project to an incompetent producer and her slug of a boyfriend. Tune in tonight as it all comes to a head and Mount Vincenzo erupts.

IFC is Channel 287 on Time Warner and 408 on Everest. (Comcast readers might want to ask their cable provider why it’s not carrying IFC.)

This morning I was excited to see the second episode of “Worst Week of My Life” on BBC America. That’s why I was rather disappointed to find that, overnight, I had TiVo’ed Time Warner Cable’s notice that BBC America had moved to another channel. — Jonathan Plummer, Kansas City

While it’s true that the elements uniquely conspired against you (TiVo’s listings service, in theory, should have registered that Time Warner had moved BBC America to Channel 78 late Sunday), I can’t see why the cable company couldn’t have simulcast the channel on digital and basic cable, perhaps with a crawl on Channel 256 announcing the change

Schwarzenegger praises PC at Convention Schwarzenegger praises PC at Convention
Governor Schwarzenegger praised the Peace Corps at the Republican National Convention: "We're the America that sends out Peace Corps volunteers to teach village children." Schwarzenegger has previously acknowledged his debt to his father-in-law, Peace Corps Founding Director Sargent Shriver, for teaching him "the joy of public service" and Arnold is encouraging volunteerism by creating California Service Corps and tapping his wife, Maria Shriver, to lead it.
