Shirley's World (TV Series) - Shirley MacLaine (1972) - Magazine Gap Road, Mid-levels

There are quite afew nice shots of Magazine Gap Road in one of the driving sequences. It starts off at the junction with Peak Road with the very obvious curved podium edge of #27 Magazine Gap Road.

We then see the car moving downhill. The black and white stripes mark the hairpin bend just past the junction with May Road. The markings are still there as are a couple of the buildings in the background including Borrett Mansions (far white building) and Bowen Mansion which is the lower building directly above the car.

Moving a bit down the hill and this looks as though it might be the precursor to today's "Regence Royale" development (these stupid names really make me chuckle sometimes). Back when views were more important than plot ratios.

We then get a few shots of driving around some bends before finally ending up just a few metres from the initial junction at the driveway to #26 Magazine Gap Road.
