    Hello! Great article.

    Do you know where the escalator scene was filmed for Playback Time?

    • Admin

      Thank you! I don’t know where the escalator scene was filmed sadly. I’d really like to know that one too!

      Looks like a railway station platform when Carson Clay reaches the top, but all my searches haven’t turned up anything that looks like the scene.

      • harry1234

        The escalator where Carson Clay reaches the top is Heron Quays station on the Docklands Railway.

        • Admin

          Thank you so much Harry! Spent many hours looking for this. How did you find it?

          • harry1234

            I thought it looked vaguely familiar, then when I saw that the bridge scene was in the Docklands I knew it was somewhere on the Docklands Railway. I started searching for nearby stations, and found it in about 5 minutes.

          • Admin

            It’s an excellent find and no other references to it online as far as I can see! I’ve created a page for the escalator scene in Playback Time and given you credit for finding it.

    Have they shot in Nice? Because in some behind the scenes footage you can hear Tim Bevan, the Producer, say they filmed in Nice.
    And if so, where have they been filming in nice?


    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of
    this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance.
    I mjst say you have done a superb job with this. In addition,
    thee blog loads verry fast for me on Safari. Superb

    Feel frde to surf to my web-site
