Extras waiting to take part in a film set.
The thing with Oxford is that nearly every British film, tv series seems to want to take some shots in the famous city. There have been so many murders in Inspector Morse, you must wonder if there’s any academics left…. I remember once watching a film set in Cambridge, and they cheated and got a sequence of the Radcliffe Camera in because it looked like Cambridge. I felt a suitable degree of self-righteous indignation. I think the film, was the young Sherlock. but, it didn’t fool me with my detective skills.
This scene above could have been an advert or a remake of Brideshead Revisited – who knows?
Entertainment for the morning commuters. A violinist plays Bach.
Have you ever been in a traffic jam on the motorway and you wonder why traffic came to a standstill? Then after 20 minutes of traffic jam, you realise there was no blockage in the road, but simply all the motorists slow down to have a look at the accident on the hard shoulder?
that bike is very small, but everyone’s looking at the violinist.
If you get any closer, I’m going to hit you with this cardboard tube. A bus demonstrating how not to overtake a cyclist. Maybe this is the solution to enforce proper overtaking procedures – ride around with cardboard tube to enforce a suitably wide overtaking manoeuvre?
The double overtake. Mr TP Hire demonstrating how to pass a cyclist with 5cm to spare. Mr TP Hire also demonstrated the philosophy – ‘thou must never in any circumstances slow down or wait for safe moment to overtake.’
Play it again Sam, the lament of the short-distance commuter.
Looking across the road.
