When the world’s only yeti in captivity is kidnapped from London Zoo, a group of children succeed in rescuing it
This Children’s Film Foundation family adventure has a Yeti that looks suspiciously more like Bungle from Rainbow than the ape-like creature purported to inhabit the Himalayan mountain range in Asia! It also has opening scenes that are filmed at Salmon Lane Lock on the Regent’s Canal in Limehouse. An 8-car formation of Class 302 EMU’s passes by in the background on the railway viaduct that links the Great Eastern main line with the LT&S route out of Fenchurch Street. There is also a scene a little while later that was filmed on Bishops Way in Bethnal Green with a train crossing the road bridge in the distant background. One final, further shot of a Class 302 on the LT&S route appears in closer detail towards the end of the film.
