Hate to spoil your fun guys we did all this back in January during the 50th Anniversary didn't we Mr. Evans ;)
No need to bid as if you want copies of the ATL script I have it all and more. Word for word and all the different locations used during filming etc etc . Heck I even have access to how much the taxi was when Sir A. Hopkins left for London with his daughter having finished filming. Well he had the director suddenly wanted another shot of him fully masked sat in the cockpit with those eyes starring back out at you which we all see in the film. However it wasn't A.Hopkins eyes starring back at you but a certain Mr. Roger Mallinson who can still be seen traveling around locally on sunny days with his Alsatian sat proudly in the passenger seat of his vintage car.The B.B.C paid the bill of course to Browns Luxurious coaches of Ambleside who later became Browns Taxis who did the journey from Coniston to London but for confidential reasons i cannot disclose how many shillings it cost at this time :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Indeed we did, Mr Dzinora!

Having gatecrashed the first week's filming of ATL back in 1988 it was nice to be able give an insight into the production back in January as part of the 50th anniversary commemorations and even I learnt a thing or two when researching and revisiting some of the locations used. The Speed Record Club was also able to reunite Robbie Robinson and Mark Stratton who played Robbie in the film who, together with Gina, took part in a behind the scenes presentation on the film. In addition I was able to make contact with a number of the cast who also provided comments based on their experiences around Coniston. Now somewhere I have a copy of the filming schedule signed by AH, wonder what that might be worth?

And Roger Mallinson is quite a character in his own right, well worth a google, in his childhood he was around Sir Malcolm Campbell and later on knew Donald.

Happy days and appreciated the help, Novie!

Some wonderful little insights there Novie, thank you for sharing. I always thought those eyes didn't look like Mr Hopkin's; now I know why. :D :D

Re Roger Mallinson, he used to keep (probably still does keep) a stunningly beautiful vintage steamboat in the wet berths at Wray Castle's boathouse on Windermere. I believe it's the only closed and secure boathouse on the lake capable of taking his boat. About 20 years ago, he was kind enough to show me all round his pride and joy and I gathered he was a bit of a character.

This Campbell trivia thing must be catching ...

I spotted the chap who plays Leo Villa in Across The Lake in an episode of The Avengers tonight.

Roger is also famous for being trapped in the Pisces 3 submersible at a depth of 480m with the ensuing highly publicised rescue! He and Chapman were pulled from Pisces after 84 1/2hrs and had a calculated 12 minutes of air left! Luckily Roger had put an extra oxygen tank onboard the day before otherwise....... :o :o
