A Great Telemovie
14 January 2007 | by eoin-14See all my reviews

Peter Bowles at his best and a great story with a bizarre twist at the end! Bowles plays the part of a TV station executive that, due to his pressure cooker career and lifestyle, is always running late. I can't believe that this movie hasn't been released on VHS or DVD as the story is timeless and probably more relevant now as our lives are even busier than they were in 1992 when Running Late was made. The BBC allowed the Australian Broadcasting Commission to show Running Late a couple of times on TV in Oz then it was returned to England. I have searched in vain for 10 years to purchase a copy of this movie... does anyone out there know where I could get a copy on DVD?
