The Goodies filming in Shepherd's Bush, 1972, for a show about over-packaging in supermarkets
LONDON is regularly used as a location for film and television crews, often drawing the attention from passers-by.
The location of the BBC studios in White City led to the filming of many popular shows in Shepherd’s Bush and the surrounding area.
In May 1972, The Goodies filmed a sequence for a new programme, Down to Earth, and were pictured outside Shepherd’s Bush shopping precinct rummaging through litter.
The trio – Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie – were taking part in a show to demonstrate the evils of over-packaging at supermarkets.
Just two years later, Steptoe and Son actors were seen enjoying a pint in a local pub during a break in filming of the comedy series.
Actors Wilfrid Brambell and Harry H Corbett dropped into the bar in August 1974, before heading back to the studio for an afternoon’s filming.
