Road was realised on DVD in September 2014

The first live televised showing is on October 6th on BBC1 NI. This may also be available on the iPlayer afterwards.

Thursday 27th seen the Belfast Film Festival get underway and the opening show was the premiere of “Road” a feature documentary based on  my family. A big thank you to everyone involved and the road race fans that helped the premiere sell out weeks before.

Road gives a ‘real life’ insight into our sport and family, enabling you to see the fantastic highs and the devastating lows and losses. Road is as real as it gets. Liam Neeson narrated  fantastically.

The newsletter.co.uk – “The film is narrated by acting heavyweight Liam Neeson, but the twists and turns of the Dunlop tale need little help from the Ballymena-born star’s portentous tones to grab attention”.

Speaking with UTV Michael says “It shows life in general, there’s no doors hidden, the good thing about the story is the truth. No fake motives in it, no fake life, it is what it is”.

On Twitter Michael commented;

 

I took to twitter myself to thank the guys from DoubleBandFilms who produced the film and also my pride of being Son & Nephew to great men, my Dad Robert & Uncle Joey.

 

On the night seeing the buzz around made us feel very proud, equally the interest on social media was humbling. “Road” is coming to cinemas in the next few months and DVD after that, I will keep you posted on dates.

Road: Not a dry eye in the 900 strong house. Powerful story of family and the magnetism of road racing. Granny Dunlop had me in floods.
