NOTE: The YouTube of this movie actually ends at the 1:34:53 mark but for whatever reason, another 50 minutes of the same movie is repeated after the credits roll.
Also released under the Jeez-give-it-away-why-don't-you title of "Grand Tour: Disaster in Time" this a good but loose film adaptation of Henry Kuttner & Catherine L. Moore's 1946 novella, "Vintage Season" about a group of time traveling "disaster tourists" from the far future. More than that I dare not say for fear of disrupting the space/time continuum.
Den of Geek notes:
The first movie from Pitch Black and Riddick director David Twohy.
...a father and daughter who've recently moved back to their old small-town guest house...meet some mysterious guests with a ghoulish interest in famous, historic disasters. Although shot on a visibly low budget, Timescape's nicely acted and engrossingly paced. Now quite difficult to get hold of on disc for a reasonable price, Timescape seems to have dropped off the cultural radar.
Is it worth seeing? If you can track it down, definitely.
Stars Jeff Daniels, Marilyn Lightstone, and Ariana Richards, who you may recognize from a movie called "Jurassic Park" which was released the following year.

When Tjalling van den Burger accepted a job in London, he needed to find a place to live – and like a growing number of young people faced with sky high rents, he turned to co-living. So what’s it like sharing a communal space with more than 500 people?
“Searching for a flatshare in London while still living in the Netherlands was almost impossible,” says Tjalling van den Burger. He had accepted a job with a tech company in London and was faced with the daunting prospect of arriving with nowhere to live – until a friend recommended he try The Collective.
A sleek 10-storey tower in Old Oak, west London, The Collective claims to be the world’s largest co-living scheme, with about 550 residents. It aims to give tenants, whose average age is 28, a communal life, with every aspect – from utility bills to entertainment – taken care of. It’s much like a university halls of residence for young professionals, albeit a very luxurious one.Continue reading...
If you’ve told yourself you’ll get your money matters in order ‘later down the line’, you could miss out on some serious cash when you’re older. Follow these easy steps for a more secure future
According to the American playwright Tennessee Williams, it’s far easier to be young without money than it is to be old without it, and sadly we’d have to agree with him. Setting up your future finances sooner rather than later won’t just help you sleep more soundly, it should pay off in the long term too. And the good news is, it doesn’t take too much effort. Here are some ideas you might want to consider:
When was the last time you checked your credit rating? It’s a good idea to check it annually, since your rating can affect the options available to you, from which credit card is obtainable to whether you’re offered a mortgage. Experts say the key to having a good credit rating is showing lenders you’re a “stable bet”, so ensure you pay bills and credit card statements on time. Ensure you’re registered to vote (you can get on the electoral roll by visiting gov.uk) and aim to avoid changing your address too often. To check your rating, look up Equifax, Experian or Callcredit – they’re the three main UK credit agencies who send data about us to lenders.
If unexpected bills are inducing panic, take some time before you act, work on a strategy and share your worries. Two psychology experts reveal their tips for overcoming the emotional stress of a cashflow problem
When you’re hit by a sudden, unexpected expense, you can think about little else. It can happen in any number of ways: a broken boiler that needs replacing, a hefty bill you forgot to budget for, a sudden unexpected change in your housing situation. How can you avoid that stress spiralling out of control? Kim Stephenson, financial psychologist and author of Finance Is Personal, and Nigel Nicholson, professor of organisational behaviour at London Business School, suggest ways to help you cope with the ups and downs of dealing with bank balance panic. Here are six key tips.Continue reading...
When the people of Balta wanted to protest, they had to leave town. “This place is so small that blocking the road is like sitting in your own hall – no one notices,” said Wathik Balti, a 19-year-old student.
So in December, they headed to the nearest motorway, where dozens of them blocked an important junction for hours and called on the government to do something about the lack of jobs, the chronic corruption and the faltering public services that blight the picturesque village.Continue reading...

Nadal chases down a drop shot at lightning speed to set up break point, but Schwartzman responds with a couple of hefty serves. Nadal goes long on the next, and Schwartzman is hanging on, cutting the gap to 4-3 in the fourth.
Two break points for Edmund on the Seppi serve, but the experienced Italian digs in to save them. A ferocious backhand down the line gives Edmund another chance, but he fires long and Seppi holds. That was a useful hold, with Edmund in a purple patch just now.Continue reading...
Manchester United have finally agreed to sign Alexis Sánchez from Arsenal with Henrikh Mkhitaryan to move in the other direction in what is understood to be a straight swap deal. This means that as there would not be any money exchanged between the clubs, United valued Mkhitaryan at around £35m, the fee Arsenal were demanding for Sánchez.
Sánchez, who was out of contract at Arsenal this summer, is expected to sign terms at United that will make him their highest-paid player, with speculation he could earn as much as £14m-a-year after tax or £500,000-per-week.Continue reading...
In different circumstances, Manchester City might have been parading Alexis Sánchez as their new A-list signing and Sergio Agüero, one assumes, might have been left wondering what it meant for his own position. It is all hypothetical now Sánchez is heading Manchester United’s way but, on this evidence, it does seem perplexing that Agüero’s place had ever come under threat and that Pep Guardiola felt it necessary to investigate changing his attacking options.Continue reading...
