GB 1983 1hr 47mins Dir: Charles Sturridge Starring: James Fox and Jane Asher
A distraught father heads for London in search of his missing teenage daughter
This drama features quite a number of railway shots during the London sequences with a lot of the action taking place on the concourse of Victoria station. There are also some very unusual aerial views of Victoria before its redevelopment, as viewed from the adjacent Grosvenor Hotel, and in one shot an EPB-type EMU is present. In one scene where James Fox and Jane Asher board a departing Class 411 4 CEP EMU, a Class 419 single-car Motor Luggage Van is on the rear. There are some scenes filmed onboard Class 411 EMUs and a good scene at Liverpool Street station where James Fox meets his wife off a train hauled by Class 47 No.47576. Another Class 47 is just visible in the background. Liverpool Street is visited again a little later, but no trains are visible this time. While searching for her son, Jane Asher crosses Ladbroke Grove bridge and watches a Class 117 DMU pass underneath on its way into Paddington. Victoria is visited again at the end of the film where Fox talks to his daughter, and a suburban EMU is prominently visible, possibly a 2 HAP. Finally, there is a scene filmed at Maida Vale Underground station and shots at Paddington of both the Praed Street entrances to the Underground and the main line station.
