Boon Question - Pidcock


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I'm collecting old photos and video to do with Pidcock Motorcycles for our anniversary. 

 

I was told that the TV series Boon did some filming in Long Eaton with someone buying a motorcycle from our store. I want to pin down the series and episode - and hopefully acquire a video clip. 

 

I have a theory that, based on a colleagues search, it might be series 6 episode 11, but I'm not 100% sure.

 

Any Boon enthusiasts who can help?

 

Thanks very much in advance.

 

Joe

There might be highwaymen near Grantham CF. Or you might losea shoe off your iron 'oss. :)

Do you know the episode name by any chance ?

If that is correct, according to Wiki the episode is titled 'Bad Pennies'.

Series 1 Episode 12 is probably not Long Eaton.  The early series were made in Birmingham; it didn't come to Nottingham until Series 4.

 

And when did Pidcock Motorcycles start in Long Eaton ?  Looking at old telephone directories, there is no Pidcock Motorcycles listed there at least up to 1984.

Incidentally my ex wife had an aunt who owned a posh house in Ruddington. Manor Park I think.

That house was used by Central TV for filming in the Boon series.

Aunt was paid £400 per day when filming. A nice wedge in those days.

A mate of mine bought a bike from them,I'm sure it was in 1989.
