    Well, all I can tell you is that it was mainly filmed in.....

    BOLTON!!!! :clap:

    The cafe scene at the beginning that lasts for a nano second, was filmed in an empty shop opposite where I work. We watched them filming the bit where they burst throught the doors with the 3 or 4 brass players. The scene with the escalators at the end is in the Market Place in Bolton. But thats all I know folks!!!!

    "Believe" it or not.

    Well, well, well, you can't escape this footy lark even if you try can you. I've just been to our local co-op and browsed along the sweetie counter. I see that our "Mars" bars are now "Believe - originally Mars".

    I dashed back on the computer to find out what its all about and low and behold -- its the blinkin' footy! :rolleyes:

    Apologies for being slow if that's what the TV advert was about, but I don't "do" TV much any more, so haven't seen the ad. :redface:

    seeing this just reminded me. the other day, something big brother related was on telly at work (i didnt actually see it, just heard the end, so cant remember what it was) might have been sunday. anyhow, there was some kind of brass ensemble/band at the end. anyone any ideas? i dont know what they were playing or why they were there, but it wasnt the big brother theme tune that they played i dont think.,

    My friend, who will be living a BB life until September, has reliably informed me that the Band playing the BB theme tune was Borehamwood Brass Band. (think thats how you spell their name)

    I hadn't seen the advert before this morning, and I assumed in brassed off stylee that a few of them might have been actors with a cornet stuck to their faces... obviously not!

    Only just spotted this. I can say for certain that it wasn't Farnworth & Walkden Band in the advert, we should have been doing it, but didn't:)
