TV Picks of the Week

Jonathan O'Brien picks four programmes to look out for over the coming week.

7th July, 2012
Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Running Man.

The Running Man

Arnold Schwarzenegger is, as ever, limited but effective in this cheesily exciting adaptation of a Stephen King (as Richard Bachman) novel, in which a convict has to fight for survival on a futuristic game show while being hunted by tooled-up death squads. Watch out for Richard Dawson, who died only last month, as the smarmy host of the programme. (1987)
