    That run of Macleans were initially script treatments for a series of international TV movies, a series of TV movies to star Peter Fonda, Maud Adams and Billy Dee Williams – the Hostage Tower was the first one made, and really the only ones, but the other novels, Air Force One is Down, Death Train and Night Watch, all “adapted” by John Dennis, were adapted, the first one a loose adaptation with new characters for European/Canadian TV, and the latter two by Yorkshire TV in the 90s with Pierce Brosnan, Alexandra Paul and Clarke Peters, the latter billed much lower down, below John Abineri.

    I thought Gyles Brandreth wrote Alistair MacLean’s Hostage Tower.

    The reason I’m reluctant to eat Bounty bars is because of Watchdog, someone sent one in they’d taken a bite out of, and Hugh Scully held it up to reveal it was caked in dead wasps. Even now, if a Bounty bar is on offer I’d much rather have a Double Decker or a Marathon.
