    Include me in the appreciation. The Renown film stable used to be on the defunct Film24 channel I had not realised they had moved on to movies for men after the MFM 2 had closed. With my Freesat+ box I can move, via USB, video files to my PC and edit out the commercials, load them on to a DVD and watch those selected, especially 40's 50' and 60's UK cops & robbers, at my leisure. Really big thank you from this old codger.

    Just watched The Hi-Jackers, and enjoyed it.
    A typical B movie filmed partly on location in Chobham Surrey with Anthony Booth in the lead part, with some familiar faces - Ronald Hines, Patrick Cargill, Derek Francis, and Harold Goodwin.
    Harmless, old fashioned romp, worth having a look if it turns up again.
