Anything that doesn't fit anywhere else, but that's still CH related.

School for Scoundrels

Post by Fjgrogan » Sat Mar 08, 2014 7:22 pm

I am just watching the old film School for Scoundrels which was broadcast on BBC2 last weekend, expires on iplayer at 0739 tomorrow and is unfortunately not downloadable (too old, I guess). I feel sure that in the first minute and a half the scene is Hertford East station with the back gate to the school in the background. Can anybody confirm?

I've been informed that it is Yeovil, but I still have my doubts!

Why not check one of the film location sites on the web ?

If you get stuck, I do have the DVD amongst my other films.

Thank you - I feel vindicated! I was so sure - even if the rest of the film was perhaps Yeovil. Also it seemed reasonable since the credits showed it as filmed in Elstree. Maybe I am no yet verging on senility after all! I wouldn't know where to look online anyway!
