Trivia

Filmed all over Greater London including between Isleworth and Richmond (bridge scene), Kew Garden, British Museum, The Old Commonwealth Institute (nice to see the old interior... shameful they destroyed it and replaced it with the Design Museum), Holland Park, Kensington High Street, Piccadilly Circus, V&A Museum, Horniman Museum, Marble Arch, Chislehurst Caves, Tower of London and many more tourist attractions... as the film was commissioned by London Transport that may be the reason for the hunt for clues. Kim Fortune went on to appear in two Bond films 'Moonraker' and 'The Spy Who Loved Me' See more »

A London Adventure
19 August 2006 | by (Devon, England) – See all my reviews

Although aimed at kids & teenagers, this drama contained numerous elements for anyone interested in London's lesser-known museums and heritage. Indeed, the Tyrant King novel (author Aylmer Hall) was published by London Transport, and I suspect may have even been commissioned by them, possibly as a vehicle for increasing public awareness of some of the capital's forgotten and overlooked treasures.

But it's not dusty and dull: it is a drama, after all, and based on an intelligent story line. I remember being totally absorbed as the youngsters chased (and sometimes were chased) around London.

The choice of incidental music was inspired, and provided an extra atmospheric quality; it was only some years later that I discovered this to be the Moody Blues. Ah, 1968. Nostalgia!
