Touching to read kenhaynes's assumption that his "much smaller number" of people were the ones "making" the programme. As well as the people working (not "twonks doing nothing") on the shoot, there are commissioning, development, production, casting, design, admin. and loads of other people making it too. And somewhere back there with an idea in his/her head, there's the writer who "made" it in the first place.

There are legal obligations to have dedicated stewards with the public's safety in mind. There are lots of other roles where you do nothing for ages then are called for to work like lightening.

Sounds like unions to me! I've been on a few film sets in my time. But I won't argue the point. Things may very well be different in the UK.

Last week's Hustle used the Blue Fin Building (as the Hustler's office when they were pretending to be a stock market swindler). There were a few other SE1 places used in the same episode, but I can't remember where they were at the moment.

I just watched it on the BBC iPlayer, and there were several scenes with Tower Bridge and the restaurants nearby. I didn't recognize the Blue Fin Building, though.

I saw the car chase being filmed - came flying down Bermondsey St and into the tunnel to Tooley St.

There was filming going on in Tanner Street last week - thoroughly enjoyed watching the set being set up on my walk to work. No idea what it was for though - any ideas?

They were filming at Spa road last week and were very courteous and kept the traffic and pedestrian access was fine.
