    It was filmed at Elstree Studios, Borehamwood so I'd imagine all the outside shooting was there or local to the studio.

    It's not the world's greatest film by any stretch of the imagination! I seem to recall that some of it was filmed on location at Letchmore Heath, Herts.

    In IMDb, couple of years ago, were filming locations credits for The Boys in Blue (1982):

    Lulworth Cove, Dorset

    and

    Eaton Bray, Bedfordshire



    At the end of the movie there are credits for these two locations.

    Caught the tail end of this attempt to launch Cannon and Ball into film by remaking Will Hay's 'Ask a Policeman' and immediately clocked a number of familiar Elstree area locations including Well End, The Mops and Brooms corner and the Buckettsland Lane junction, plus Elstree Studios standing in for a bus depot. Doesn't seem to be rescheduled on ITV4 this week (unlike other film fare on the channel). Worth watching, if only to see why C&B's film career didn't take off !

    Edit : I see my thread has found another ! Thanks for merging mods.

    I hadn't seen it since it first came out. I saw it was on this afternoon and decided to watch it. I must admit I quite enjoyed it.

    I live near Lulworth Cove and at least 2 scenes were filmed in a nearby village called Wool. I think it was in about 1982 as i was still at school but remember them filming.

    Recorded this and skimmed through it - it's easy to see why the British film industry was struggling when they were releasing dross like this! As Cooper S says, a few recognisable Elstree/Borehamwood locations including both entrances of High Canons, Radlett Road at High Cross and the garage where the Mercedes was washed at the start was the Rainbow Garage on what is now the A414 near Colney Heath.
