I have added 3 pictures of the Beco Building Site as it is in the present day, or near enough...

It was both...

They filmed a lot of scenes in Hamburg, where the pictures are above, from episodes such as "The Fugitive" and "Who Won The War Anyway"....

For the mass of filming on site, it was Elstree. It is very noticeable once you know, in episodes such as "When The Boat Goes Out", as you can see modern semi detached houses in the background....

I have always wanted to line up the houses on Google Maps, and make a map of how the Beco Elstree Site was, such as the lads hut, the admin hut etc. In a few episodes its easy to see a lot of buildings in the background.....

I would absolutely love to see something like that. A clear accurate map!! Highlighting where the hut stood, the admin, the washroom, the fence where Tracey was discovered by Wayne, the herb garden, perhaps a line illustrating the area where Neville was picked out in the police line-up, the area where Dennis thought he saw a 'cat', where Oz got paint on his suit, the hut where they stole the paint etc etc etc...

Is that possible? Can it be done?

I will have a go one day.
I think it was Last Rites where you can get a good layout of houses and stuff in the background....
