Yellowthread Street (TV Series) - Bruce Payne (1990) - Hong Kong Tennis Centre, Hong Kong

During Middleman, Marenta (Robert Taylor) heads out to the tennis club to pick up the bad guy's ex-wife to see if she can coax him out of his hostage holding. The drive takes just a couple of minutes - fairly impressive when you consider the hostage taking was being done at Kowloon's British Military Hospital in Ho Man Tin and the tennis club Marenta ends up going to is the Hong Kong Tennis Centre along Wong Nai Chung Gap Road on HK Island.


The main difference these days just seems to be that the opposite side of the road has seen a lot of plant and tree growth and is looking much greener. Here is a couple of modern Streetview grabs showing Wong Nai Chung Road and the entrance to the centre.
