When heavy fog prevents all aircraft from leaving London airport, a group of passengers take an airline bus to get them to an alternative airport. However, one among their number is the mastermind behind a bullion robbery at the airport... and particularly keen to escape the fog! Written by
Speaking on BBC Radio 4's "Loose Ends" in September 2016, 'Petula Clark' (Lee Nicholls) recalled this as a "dreadful film", noting that the noxious artificial fog used in studio - to disguise the conspicuous lack of background scenery - made the cast fall ill. See more »

This film is a must see for any fan of the following movies: The Cat And The Canary (Bob Hope), Any Agatha Christie Movie (Margaret Rutherford ONLY!), Ask A Policeman (Will Hay, Harbottle & Albert), OH! Mr Porter (Will Hay, Harbottle & Albert) or What A Carve Up! (Sid Jmes & Kenneth Moore), The House In Nightmare Park (Frankie Howard). Brilliantly shot movie, fog rolls in and creates a real feeling of horror. Add to this brilliant performances by Frankie (Very Young) and Margaret Rutherford. Watch this film in bed when it's dark outside! Subsitute bus driver (Howard) takes a group of passengers from the airport (where its very foggy) to another destination. Once the bus sets off we hear news of a robbery (done by THE BANKER) bars of gold bullion have been stolen and the other place the police think the gold could be is in the boot of the RUNAWAY BUS. Frankie loses his way the thick fog and soon the RUNAWAY BUS is in the middle of nowhere! The small number of passengers are all behaving very odd for various reasons but is one of them THE BANKER? Brilliant, who done it?
