Remake of the 1965 film as a 6-part TV series, set 2 years earlier.

Filmed in the UK and Croatia.

If the only locations are Liverpool and Croatia, Croatia is a very versatile country for contrasting scenery - it's doubled up so far (midway in ep 4) for West and East Berlin, Beirut, Helsinki and Finland forests, and a mid-Pacific tropical island.

Also puzzling why they backdated it all to 1963 - the vehicle dates are all over the place, throughout the 1960s and maybe a couple even newer. But best moment was this in "Beirut"

Croatia certainly has plenty of islands.

The novel was published in 1962.

Overall a comic-book style thriller - some clunky bits and an overblown plot - but it was a fun ride with some wryly amusing dialogue to paper over some of the hiccups.

Rejects:

Ep 1.01 - "West Berlin" interior

dsl wrote If any of our bus fans have had longstanding desires to ID "West Berlin" single deckers from just the interior views, now's your chance .... Unless it's a tram, but there's no hint (in script or any view) that it might be.

kudos wrote Looks like a tram to me.


Ep 1.01 - dossier photo of Beetle

... looks late 60s ....

Ep 1.05 - stock footage of "US" freeway

Other 60s stuff: I got the impression they enjoyed themselves inserting all these period references

- nice bit of background CGI for 1963 "London" - the Post Office tower under construction (1961-64). Subtle tribute on billboard as well to "The Manchurian Candidate", which has a similar underlying plot theme to Ipcress File.

- cassette-like tape recorder/player used by US spy boss; lots of phones on a Minister's desk

No idea how well they may or may not match "1963" ....
