It almost looks like they hired Pathe News to film this. There are plenty of Minis in the background. I wonder if they paid for the rights of the background music.  :lol:

That was sort of nostalgic. Not because I was in the CIA but because I started driving in 1974 and also because I recognise many of those roads.

 

It was actually a couple of years later that I became more familiar with Ealing and Gunnersbury and the Chiswick roundabout, but all you need to know is that those neighbourhoods are in West London, out towards Heathrow airport, and where all the air hostesses lived

I assume that this was done in the UK because by law the CIA can not operate within the USA and the UK is a friendly country. And because in the US we are not smart enough to negotiate roundabouts. :lol:
