    Hi all;

    Here's an up date on locations I still need for 'The Professionals' tv series to go in my book...so any clues would be very welcome.





    Long Shot: Okay this ones tough because its a demolition site in 1977 - the houses being the only clue. I know 100% it was East Watford though - so this one needs local knowledge.





    Private Madness, Public Danger: A standard looking block of flats - led to believe Slough or surrounding areas.





    The Acorn Syndrome: A manor-type house I am led to believe is near, or in, Windsor.





    Dead Reckoning: I have checked all North London houses up for sale and cannot find this type of house and canopy. Led to believe its Crouch End / Hornsey / Highgate areas.



    Thanks in advance - I have few more but these are just to be going on with for now.

    Sorry, can't help with identifying any of these. Good luck. Just a thought - if you are writing a book have you had no luck with cast and crew members?

    I managed to get as much help as I could but some areas/locations couldn't be recalled by the location managers.

    What a selfish bunch! You'd think film crew would keep accurate and detailed records for us location nerds to peruse.

    And this church has stumped me (episode: First Night - 1978)...the house next to it looks Central London, or around Regents Park. But could easily be Willesden or around St. Katherines Dock.

    Do these flats in the background ring any bells with anyone - very distinctive red-brick entrances. Episode: Dead Reckoning - 1979. To me it looks Kensington or Islington areas.

    It's Heathrow Airport, which is changed beyond belief, so does anyone recognise this building / car-park from 1979 - its not a Terminal building, and has to be the A4 end of the airfield. Episode: Slush Fund.

    Distinctive, but quite common to a lot of areas of London. I agree it looks like some flats in Kensington or Islington, but I also know some in Bloomsbury and other areas that look somewhat like that.

    A bridge with what looks like a church hall/chapel. Camden or Barnsbury?

    Here's another car interior shot that is used in two episodes a year a part: 'In The Public interest' in '78 and 'Dead Reckoning' in '79. The clue being the flats that appear to have some very small rectangular slots that I have never seen before anywhere! And in one shot - as per my arrows - a tree separates the lanes at the top of a very steep junction. It all looks Harrow/Pinner areas to me, but could be wrong.



    Dead Reckoning:





    In The Public Interest

    The church from 'First Night' has been found too, and image therefore removed.
