4th November – A magnificent find from Geoff Dodd which has taken him years of searching. North Middlesex Golf Club on Friern Barnet Lane is the Hospital seen in THE BARON: The High Terrace.

At the other end of Burma Road is where the cars leave the road and go onto Chobham Common.  This track is still there and can be seen on google maps.  Burma Road was also featured in DANGER MAN: To Our Best Friend' and THE SENTIMENTAL AGENT: Express Delivery. Burma Road is the back entrance road to the MOD Longcross Tank Test Establishment.  It is now Longcross Studios.  Burma Road can easily be recognised.  It is for the most part straight and has a prominent angled concrete kerb on one side (MOD).”

3rd September - Before I could post up Andrew Chilcott’s confirmation, Gordon Thomson, e-mailed me with the same Bank Raid location – spooky!

26th August - Andrew Chilcott has been researching the missing locations from THE INVISIBLE MAN: Pilot Episode. He had suggested Leigh-on-Sea as a possibility, but had been unable to prove this conclusively. Andrew has found the supporting evidence. I’m posting this here in full as it shows the depth of Andrew’s research:

“This photo shows Leigh-on-Sea Station signal box. Here is a snap of it in later years: http://www.flickr.com/photos/tunnel_one/7159526195/  Although each shot was taken at a different distance, note the pre-fabricated concrete structure in the Flickr shot, and its length relative to the signal box itself.  That same structure appears in your screen grab, and although there is foreshortening by the camera, the relative proportions are maintained.  In both shots I count four bays of windows in the signal box itself;

 

“The railway line was electrified and re-signalled in 1961-62, and so the overhead line structures would not have been present in any of your screen grabs, whereas the signals which do appear in them are now all gone.  Note that there is another brick-built structure beside the concrete one at the signal box in the Flickr shot.  That dates from the re-signalling project as new-build and so would not appear in your screen grab;

“This shows suburban housing on the skyline, as does this Flickr reverse angle view of the signal box: http://www.flickr.com/photos/beerdave1745/5123209615/  I say these are on Marine Parade.  Neither view represents the same angle but if the camera has panned to follow the car there is a possibility you can pick out the distinctive arrangement of chimneys we see in the 'modern' view?

“Here there is a distinctive blob jutting up on the skyline directly above the car's roof. This also appears on the Google Street View here: http://tinyurl.com/llnykpp . The blob turns out to be the ruined Hadleigh Castle, which of course would have been visible then just as now;

“While overcoats are being compared in here, I think we see on the skyline those houses between Dynevor Gardens and Crescent Road on Marine Parade.  Vegetation and topography prevent a present day Google Street View, but the roofs match very well on the Google satellite imagery: http://tinyurl.com/lxox7so  The 'action' was accordingly shot on the mudflats below, specifically here: http://tinyurl.com/kr2gowf.”

H. G. WELLS' INVISIBLE MAN: Bank Raid (Wolfgang Suschitsky: 1958)

Film: DRAGONSLAYER 1981

26th August – Thanks to James Webster who as corerectly pointed out that Gravel Path is in Berkhamsted, not Tring. Hopefully I’ve now corrected my mistake.

25th August – Another find from Andrew Chilcott. The crematorium in THE ADVENTURER: Skeleton in the Cupboard, this is Hendon Crematorium, Hendon cemetery.

THE ADVENTURER: Skeleton in the Cupboard (Cyril Frankel)

25th August – Another location from THE BARON has been found by  Andrew Chilcott. This was a very tricky one to locate as even the Railway enthusiasts have not documented this tunnel very well. Andrew did a lot of map work to locate this one, well done!

THE BARON: Farewell to Yesterday (Leslie Norman: September 1965)
G33: Railway Tunnel, Ganwick Corner, nr. Bentley Heath, Potter's Bar - Mannering threatens to smash Nick's henchman against the wall of an oncoming tunnel unless he reveals the location of Nick's cabin.

11th August – Two more obscure locations identified by Andrew Chilcott. These are both examples of Berkhamsted,  representing France.

B22: Gravel Path, Ellesmere Road, Berkhamsted, Herts – Simon drives into the village of Epernay to ask directions to Chateau Belleville.

B22: Gravel Path, Ellesmere Road, Berkhamsted, Herts – Cordelia follows Jeff Walker in The Baron's Jensen not knowing that she is leaving Mannering in mortal danger.

11th August – A great find from Andrew Chilcott who has manged to identify this top secret location. Andrew wrote “This is an aerial view of the former UK Atomic Energy Authority site at Winfrith in Dorset looking westwards.  It is presently being decommissioned.  Further, the installation highlighted in ink is the experimental DRAGON reactor completed in 1962. Those in charge of cleaning up the Winfrith plant have a website which includes a very similar 1957 aerial view to that in the photograph.

THE AVENGERS: The Bird Who Knew Too Much (Roy Rossotti: October 1966)

Frank Elrick examines the photograph he as found. It shows the position of a secret missile installation (The experimental DRAGON reactor, at the former UK Atomic Energy Authority site).

12th July  - GBC on the Britmovie forum has at last identified one of the location from this scene in The Girl From Auntie – GBC writes: ‘The cab is driving west with parliament to the left off screen. That double kerbs still there, as is the distinctive building with two small windows between the partition window and the drivers face. The arch and columns are at no 4 Millbank, although in the Google street maps view it's hidden by a tree from every angle!’

THE AVENGERS: The Girl From Auntie (Roy Baker: October 1965)
Abingdon Street and Millbank, SW1 – After leaving Barrett, Barrett and Wimpole, Steed and Georgie Price Jones take their taxi to the offices of the four Jacques brothers (back projection inside cab).

 

 

1st June – In September 1965 work started at MGM Britiish Studios on an adaptation of Robin Estridge’s Day of the Arrow to be called simply 13. The film was to star Kim Novac and David Niven. Location filming took place duriing September at the ChÔteau de Hautefort in the Dordogne department of southwestern France. In October the cast were back in Borhamwood filming at the studios. In November the title of the movie had been changed to THE EYE OF THE DEVIL. In December Kim Novac left the project to be replaced by Deborah Kerr which entailed a further seven weeks of filming including a week at Hautefort. The production was completed in early February 1966. The film was released in July 1966.

 

ChÔteau de Hautefort represents the fictional Castle Bellenac which overlooks the town of Bellenac. In the film, an annual ‘Festival de 13 Jouas’ is celebrated in the square by the church and the whole town attends.

 

    

 

For the film, although the festival is established in the actual town of Hautefort, the rest of the action takes place on the backlot at Borehamwood.

 

    

 

Art director Elliot Scott based his design for the Borehamwood version of Bellenac on Hautefort itself and the architecture other towns in the region. Some of his design includes faithful recreations of sections of actual buildings. This backlot version of Bellenac would stand in Borehamwood until the site was redeveloped in 1973 and be redressed to feature in a number of film and television series including THE PRISONER and U.F.O.. Featured here are some comparison photographs of the buildings found that form the basis of the buildings founf in the backlot set.
