Re: Google Streetview and Maps Archive TV locations thread

Anybody been watching The Pembrokeshire Murders with Luke Evans and Keith Allen? I noticed that for the team's HQ for their case work was filmed quite far from Pembrokeshire in Port Talbot. Hard to get a direct view of the isolated building but you can see it here I think https://www.google.co.uk/ma...

The youngest daughter insisted on watching Nativity 2 this morning and I saw the bit where the coach stops on the way to the castle and they lose a pupil and thought that must be findable! https://www.google.com/maps/@52.8260165,-3.2943141,3a,75y,300.92h,93.02t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sZqMZ3i6qAbxzT1XCBO...

Re: Google Streetview and Maps Archive TV locations thread

That was an odd edit for After Henry. I mentioned it on here as a location I was looking for and if memory serves I believe I also found out who was responsible for locations for the show and emailed them but got no reply. At around the same time as both things the page was edited and that false inf...

She told me he gave off lots of "oh yes it is me" vibes and clearly revelled in his fame. Shame that some are so shallow like that, maybe down to something in his early ...

On our older TV I use the fire stick for DIsney+, Britbox, Acorn TV (if anyone would like a free year's subscription use the code IADVD12) and also I have Prime and so there is lot...

Disney +

I was disappointed that Disney+ don't have more National Geographic tv shows, given that it is one of the main platforms advertised. Does anyone know why the NG stuff is so limited? I love Life Below Zero (which is made by the BBC but shown mostly by NG) and that for instance isn't there. The offeri...

I miss seeing posts here from the likes of Alistair (or was it Alisdair), Bent Halo, Robin Carmody, Penfold et al to name a few. The forum has gone increasingly quiet over the last 5 years or so.

I have been watching episodes from this anothology series from the early 1980s on youtube. They are suspenseful and, whilst basic in filming style, have found them a delight. Keith Barron narrates one and Anita Harris is among the actors appearing. It seems the series was based on stories contribute...
