Amnesiac geologist Robert (Bob) Boyd is working on a project that he had been retained to do. He has no memory of the past, but during the project, his memory begins to return, and the memories are not happy ones.
It is now 2005 and I have clear memories of viewing this film on the BBC when it was originally broadcast. By definition that means it must have some special quality. Running Blind is a taut thriller,with a strong cast, and beautifully shot in Iceland (the scenery is as much a character as the main participants).

A little dated perhaps - but as an example of cold-war double dealing and the treachery which is the life of a spook, it is highly recommended. I'd like to put in a plea for its release on video/DVD too.
