The Anniversary


Love the site but I must correct the location for the pictures you are displaying re The Anniversary.

The houses were built on the backlot of Elstree Studios in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire by the local film comstruction crew who put them up in a few days.

I worked there as a technician in the 1960's and like a lot of the 'locals' was amazed how quickly they were put up (and "demolished" after the film was completed.)

Unfortunately the site is now occupied by a Tesco store, although a fairly large portion of the studio still survives and is full operational.

Big Brother, Millionaire, Pop Idol all come from there. And the latest Star Wars picture had sequences shot there too.

Hope this helps. Keep up the good work!
