Cut price waffle irons?

Blackheath village in BT advertisement commercial outside Oxfam
Nicola emailed me to say:

I don’t know if you remember this advert, but it was filmed at Oxfam over a couple of very hot July days 2 years ago!

Click the picture to go to the ad.

I don’t remember the ad, but then I tend to skip most of the ads, by various means… It is a strange one – are they taking a pot-shot at the Cookery Nook?  I’d quite fancy a cut price waffle iron if I could find one!

There’s not a great deal of Blackheath visible, most of it is tastefully blurred out in a depth-of-field that makes the ad look like an old romantic movie.  A bit of the shopping arcade next to Oxfam and the sofa shop is visible, and there’s a good shot of the Picture Gallery behind him, but that’s about it.  I don’t know where the big billboard is (but then again, it could be anywhere).

Does anyone else have any examples of Blackheath caught on film, besides this one, and the Hexagonal House?  I’m still trying to get hold of a copy of “BBC – Voice of Britain“, made in the 1930s by the GPO Film Unit (now named “The Blackheath Arts Club” at the end of Bennett Park), as many of the scenes were also shot in Blackheath.

    The billboard is in Brockley somewhere, so they said.
