  • Newspaper offices in British films and tv

    I watched The Day the Earth Caught Fire again recently which is set in a newspaper office, the Express I think.

    Last night I watched an episode of Special Branch (Sewell, Mower) which went to the Express office.

    Defence of the Realm also has some newspaper scenes, is that the Express again ?

    There must be more ?

    The Day the Earth Caught Fire: Indeed it was The Express in Fleet Street, and the editor in the film was played by the real editor of The Express at the time, Arthur Christiansen.

      Some of Kill Me Tomorrow (1957) was set in a newspaper office , not sure however if it was real but I think there were shots of Fleet Street.

          The BBC film Slip Up (1986) renamed The Great Paper Chase for legal reasons for its eventual 1988 broadcast before falling foul of a libel suite, is a great portrait of Fleet St in the 70s, especially the Express, Fulton McKay playing editor Ian McColl.

            Are these genuine newspaper locations or just newspaper based ?

                The Day the Earth Caught Fire was in the real Daily Express building with the real Express editor playing the editor.

                    Clive James Postcard from London went into the express building after it had closed down.
