Reminiscent of the ‘Let the Train Take the Strain’ series of advertisements made by British Rail in the 1970s and 80s, Meeting Point follows the progress of two businessmen commuting from the Wirral to Liverpool. One travels by train and arrives in good time, while the other, a motorist, experiences a catalogue of delays and difficulties, finally arriving at the meeting just as it finishes.
