    Spot on the Map (e18) London Bridge to Tower Bridge [UK]

    According to the above English Club TV website page "Spot on the Map is an educational program based on authentic material. Each program is an exciting excursion around London. In each episode you will be introduced to amazing sights, learn about English culture, traditions and history. You also will be able to explore the places in London, which are not found in tourist guides."

    Naturally they got around to the object of interest in the following excerpt from e18:

    "Spot On The Map – Tower Bridge"

    Tower Bridge appears in detail and sometimes unusual angles in multiple scenes from 00:00:19 to 00:03:43.

        Return of the Saint (s02e14) Tower Bridge is Falling Down (1978) [UK] (episode) (series)

        Quoting IMDb: "When Charlie Stewart is found crushed to death on one of his demolition sites his daughter Jenny seeks the Saint's help. She is convinced that her father was killed by his business partner Ray Dennis who also conned him out of a large sum of money. The Saint devises an elaborate plan which will appeal to Dennis's greed and hopefully expose him as the killer."

        Ray Dennis is capably played by the character actor John Woodvine who at the time of this post has been in the business from 1958 to 2017 with 176 acting credits.

        So what has Tower Bridge to do with this episode besides being in the title? Quoting "":
        "Simon vows to exact the maximum amount of revenge on Dennis. So he puts his plan into action – an elaborate con involving transporting Tower Bridge to America...involves his company being awarded the contract to demolish Tower Bridge"

        I found an appropriate image (#2 of 7) on the webpage "".
        The actual image appears to actually from a different site (" JiXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyMjc3MTQzOTk@._V1_.jpg").
        Ray Dennis (John Woodvine) and Simon Templar (Ian Ogilvy) are standing before the south end of the Tower Bridge with the Tower of London in the background on a foggy day.
