Goldeneye (Dir: Martin Campbell, 1995)

I put the bungy in the list but I missed the other locations out. Obviously the highlight was using the new ‘secret’ MI6 building as British Intelligence headquarters - absolute genius! It’s at 85 Albert Embankment if you’re not sure. It’s also used in “The World is Not Enough” - well they had to keep it consistent then didn’t they!

The bad news is that the big tank scene where it pummels up part of St. Petersburg was shot on a set and at the British Sugar Factory in Peterborough and Leavesden Aerodrome, Hertfordshire (we all knew that but it is still disappointing to have it confirmed - though some of the end shots are real and some of the chase scenes as well - it’s really hard to tell which ones though.). A lot of Russia was actually shot in the UK. The huge Russian hotel for example was the Langham in Portland Place dressed up with Russian flags, the Russian Defence Ministry interiors were shot at the Draper’s Hall, Throgmorton Ave, Broadgate and Somerset House is used for a St. Petersburg Square - the cold war must really be over…

I haven’t been there but the huge satellite dish is supposed to be at Arecibo in Puerto Rico.
