Dir: David Drury
Starring: Gabriel Byrne and Greta Scacchi
A journalist investigates the link between an influential MP and a Russian agent
This popular political thriller includes a notable sequence whereby Byrne and Scacchi meet on Hungerford Bridge. Two and four-car EPB EMU’s feature prominently in these shots, all of which are in the BR blue & grey colour scheme contemporary at the time. Similar such units are also seen crossing a viaduct in south London. Lastly, there is an excellent ground level shot of Blackfriars station as viewed from the Upper Thames Street road underpass.
