I'm looking into the SE1 (and borders) area where films or tv progs may have been used as locations, either backgrounds or actual buildings, roads, etc. If anyone has anything that they think is useful I would be really grateful. I've tried the Local Studies Library but they don't cross reference this kind of event.

Already know about Slipper and the Rose, The Bill, Entrapment, Poirot (the ABC Murders), Eastenders, The Fear, The Paradise Club, Bridget Jones, Lock Stock, Dr Who, The Avengers but will accept any information as I can cross reference to see if I have this already.

some films:

Wings of A Dove - Borough Market (Helena Bonham Carter costume thingy)
Pool of London - Shad Thames (poor 1950s british b/w thriller)
Truly Madly Deeply - South Bank (1980s thespy romantic story)

Is it true that while filming London's burning they managed to burn down a building near dockhead by mistake and had to call in the real fire brigade?
