"Keep On Running" is the first episode of the BBC sitcom The Green Green Grass. It was first screened on 9 September 2005.

Synopsis[]

Boycie begins a normal day of neglecting his wife, ignoring his son and taking the dog for a walk in a taxi but all is to change. Upon the arrival of friend Denzil, Boycie soon finds out that the Driscoll Brothers, who are currently in prison, are due to be released in three weeks time. Worse still, they have been tipped off that Boycie was the supergrass whose evidence got them imprisoned. Fearing for his life, Boycie sells the house and showroom and buys Winterdown Farm in Oakham, Shropshire.

Upon arriving in Shropshire, Boycie, Marlene and Tyler get lost and cannot find Winterdown Farm. They stop off at a local pub only to find the tradition of Morris dancing still exists in the country. They soon find the farm and begin to settle in until a knock at the door frightens them. It turns out to be Elgin Sparrowhawk, the farm's very own manager. After several disturbing revelations during their conversation with him they decide to retire only... what did happen in that bedroom?
