IT'S A QUICKY RELEASE tie-in song, for the movie, 'Biggles', Cushing's last theatrically released movie in 1986. It's also now very dated. It's corny. It's annoying synth rock from the 80's. But Cushing strolling through shots, is something certainly different, and the pay-off ending is worth the wait. Whatever, it isn't as bad as the ill-advised DIY RAP video for Cushing's 'No White Peaks'. A hastily cobbled together 2 and half mins of our chap, dressed in gold-chain, bling and baseball hat akimbo, shot in someones back yard, was a mistake and did no one any favors . .

THE THEME FROM BIGGLES: AN ADVENTURE IN TIME (1986) adventure film directed by John Hough and later released in 1988 in the United States as 'Biggles: Adventures in Time'. The plot involves a time traveler from the 1980s who is inserted into World War I to help the character Biggles from the series of novels by W. E. Johns and where Biggles also travels to the 1980s to save his new friend. The film stars Neil Dickson, Alex Hyde-White, and Peter Cushing in his final feature film role. Other songs that appear in the film include: Jon Anderson – "Chocks Away", Deep Purple "Knocking at Your Back Door". Mötley Crüe – "Knock 'Em Dead, Kid" and The Immortals – "No Turning Back" (featuring John Deacon in his only non-Queen recording).

AS WELL AS Music video promotion for the film the UK comic THE EAGLE ran a series of promo ads in it's pages. Sponsored by the good ol ABC cinema chain !
