The team have been hard at work behind the scenes to bring newsreaders the first glimpse of the most comprehensive insight into televisions most famous construction site – series 1 BECO Building Site. As some of you may know, the vast majority of Auf Wiedersehen, Pet’s German building site was filmed in the UK at BBC Elstree Studios, Hertfordshire – currently home of the EastEnders outdoor film set.
In the first of a number of additional features to be added to the Official Auf Wiedersehen, Pet Fansite, we bring you 13 interactive site plans, allowing you to view in excess of 120 scenes filmed at Elstree Studios. It’s all here.... Where did Wayne first lay eyes on Tracy? Where did Barry and Moxey build their herb garden? Where did Oz fall foul of that red paint chasing vandals? Where did Bomber and Dennis see the biggest rat they’d ever seen? And where did Neville stumble upon that bomb to save the day?
In addition, we’ve included a digitally remastered site plan including several artist impressions of the building site to give you an inside view of what the film set would have looked like back in 1982 here.
But that’s not all! Over the coming months, we’ll be adding many new features including facts and trivia, three-dimensional aerial views of the BECO Building Site and the ultimate animated film set walk-through plus something EastEnders fans might be interested in!
