The Hot Potato

Thanks to our night trains, Brockley's no stranger to nuclear material, so where better to shoot a film about "two chancers who find a lump of Uranium"?


The Hot Potato, starring Ray Winstone, is currently filming in Kneller Road.

Thanks to B and Victoria who pieced the story together.

The BDS are currently looking for anyone with filming experience for our entry in the renown Norwich Naked Film Festival. The working title is “The Doggers Of War”. As you can imagine we have plenty of members who are comfortable in front of the camera, not everyone can rise to the occasion – especially this time of year.

We need technical skills. Specifically a Grip and someone who knows how to handle a massive boom. Our prop department is a little sparse, we’re looking for a couple of pantomime horses (rear end only but we’ll take what you have) and a unicycle.

Any one who can help please email Colin at the usual address.

I'm surprised the doggers don't want a 'best boy'.

Back in the dim distant past, Greenwich was festooned with banners proclaiming "Greenwich, a Nuclear Free Borough' hung from lamp posts.
All the while there was a small nuclear reactor inside the Naval College, used to train future submariners.

@ThisIsEngland - yes, i remember my Dad going up to Greenwich Naval College in the early 80s to check on the reactor there. He was a nuclear inspector at the time

Christ, imagine some hungover navy student hanging his duffle coat on "go" lever

Jason, the Royal Navy nuclear reactor in Greenwich took a bit of shifting.

"two chancers who find a lump of Uranium"? Ah, the British film industry.

"...and hilarity ensues", no doubt.

I think all nuclear reactors should be given nice names. Kathy the fast breeder would be awfully pleasent.

..wow...typing before the morning coffee. Bad idea.

And Lewisham had guards at the borough boundries preventing anyone with a nuclear powered pacemaker entering their 'nuclear free zone'.

Deptford Pudding said...

The trains carrying nuclear waste were a distraction from the delights of Lewisham High St.
