Yellowthread Street (TV Series) - Bruce Payne (1990) - Edinburgh Place, Central

More specifically the carpark that has sat here for many years. Interestingly, it is still called the Star Ferry Multi-storey Car Park on local maps but actually, as many people should know by now, the Star Ferry is no longer in this vicinity thanks to the waterfront reclamation.

This scene involves a bit of action as the cops follow the Middleman down from the Peak and a gunfight ensues when some local gangsters turn up and he escapes in a cloud of burnin' rubber...well, when I say burnin' rubber I may be exaggerating a bit.

Yellowthread Street (TV Series) - Bruce Payne (1990) - Kai Tak Airport, Kowloon

A slightly different view of the airport for a change, including shots of what I guess was the old dropping off point (I can't remember myself, it's been too long and, regrettably, I never paid much attention to these things back then). Anyway, enjoy the nostalgia from Key Witness as Marenta (Robert Taylor) heads to Kai Tak to try and get the witness's wife before she gets on the plane.
