After the fall of the Ottoman Empire, a 14-year old Saudi prince is sent on a diplomatic mission to London
This historical coming-of-age drama has some scenes filmed on the Bluebell Railway, with Horsted Keynes station putting in an appearance along with a train hauled by SECR H Class 0-4-4T No.263. The arrival scenes filmed in ‘London’, however, are a lot less clear. These either used the Bluebell again with some substantial CGI graphics or, what is more likely, the Bluebell Railway carriages were borrowed by the production company and filming took place on a very convincing set.
