    Ok Ok I'm a tube anorak and love to watch old 50/60s movies that feature London underground stations.



    Am I right in saying the the film "Ring Of Spies" has the most shots of tube stations?, I will have to dig it out and do a count as I remember there being loads.



    Also in the film Piccadilly Third Stop the station featured was "Belgravia" (I think) and was told by a good source that this was Aldwych station that is used for films.



    Any other "station spotter" films I should look out for?

    Where they painted the train, the passengers, the staff and the station - Yellow

    His journey starts at Chalk Farm (that one wasn't painted yellow)

    Chalk Farm tube was also used in The Professionals: Blood Sports [Season 4, Episode 8]

    Hampstead tube was also used in The Collector (1965)

    Gloucester Road tube was used in The Sweeney: Supersnout [Season 2, Episode 3]

    Moorgate tube was used in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (2005)

    Notting Hill Gate tube was used in Otley (1968)

    Leicester Square tube was used in Seance on a Wet Afternoon (1964)

    Hounslow Central tube was used in Bend It Like Beckham (2002)

    Perivale tube was used in The Thick of It (2005)



    Some of those might have just used the exterior of the tube station.

    Then there are also all the ones which share a tune with an overground line. They might not be recorded as a tube station, just as a station.



    Check the UK Locations Tree on the IMDb



    Edit: Check the word "Underground" as well as the word "Tube"

    June Richie gets our a car outside West Ruislip station in 'This is my Street'. In 'Sapphire' there is a shot of Tufnell Park (looks no different today!). I think Hampstead station might be in 'Les Bicyclettes of Belsize' and Sliding Doors has Embankment station. Must have been loads of others!

    As does 'The Good die young' with the train stopping at 'High Street'!, plus the chase across the elctrified tracks near the end, plus 'Green Street' where Mile End is used but the sineage says Bank which it is not, also as mentioned Aldwych was used a lot before it was closed in '94 I think, Dolly Rawlings from the popular drama 'Windows' is seen entering after pulling of the robbery, 'Patriot Games' has a Tube scene there, the station announcer is calling the stations the train will stop at one being Marble Arch, which in 'real life' it didn't, the line between Holborn and Aldwych was just a short peak-hour service shuttle branch, the exterior of the Station is still there in red glazed brick where it's original station name of 'Strand' can cleary be seen
