The story be­hind the film

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - YOUR TV WEEK -

In or­der to de­pict the mem­o­rable se­quence in which Jim dis­cov­ers that Lon­don is empty, the crew sealed off fa­mous lo­ca­tions – such as Ox­ford Street and West­min­is­ter Bridge (above) – around the city for min­utes at a time. The crew filmed at the qui­etest times pos­si­ble in or­der to min­imise dis­rup­tion to Lon­don’s com­muters. For the scene in which Jim walks past an over­turned dou­ble-decker bus, the crew had to place, shoot and re­move the ve­hi­cle, all within 20 min­utes.
