A Jewish estate agent in London discovers that thanks to an artificial insemination mishap, his real father owns a pig farm in Yorkshire
This brilliant Jewish comedy features a number of scenes filmed from inside the former Marco Polo House, demolished in 2014, which looked out over the viaducts close to Battersea Park station. A Class 422 4 BIG and a more modern Class 455 EMU can be seen stabled in Battersea Pier Sidings. There is a later shot of Mark Frankel driving his car around Staples Corner, Brent Cross, and a Class 319 passes over Welsh Harp viaduct on the Midland main line as he passes beneath. The best shots, however, take place at Clapham station on the Carnforth-Settle ‘Little North Western’ route in North Yorkshire. There are some excellent shots of the station, including one ‘going-away’ shot filmed from the back cab of a departing train, and two Class 142 ‘Pacer’ DMU’s feature prominently. These are Nos.142068 and 142084.
