They must have upped the budget for promo and allowed them to go more than 20 miles from Luton!
I think you may have cracked it!

I believe so, I had the misfortune of borrowing a Firenza when I had damaged my RS2000 too much to repair before the next event. It didn't go at all well!! Lost all electrics on a downhill hairpin in Wales and missed the apex (it was 3.am) and parked at the base of a cliff in the Brecon Beacons!! Happy days :-D

As for my last trip to the building, before the fire, I went on a long weekend coach tour to see Versailles and Monet's Garden. The free day in the city allowed visiting this place and a very small picture hidden behind a pyramid, not to mention a very elaborate pylon! :)

stocks, duck pond, half timbered houses, village green, the marketing dept return to type rather than the brave new world of Hemel Hempstead new town!

You are right of course Mick another nice little ride out in the C5 for a scenic location shot for the gallery!

Well I am going to struggle with Part 2, and Part 3 so I'll try to get Part one maybe in a couple of attempts because I really cant recall who the lady is, and I am not entirely sure about the Paul Mariner look alike ( yes I know its not Paul Mariner) :-D

So we have
Spoiler: show
Definites Richard Burton, Harold Wilson and Michael Parkinson
Likely George Harrison
No idea yet Try Jane Fonda although I think she should be from the UK looking at the others in your collection
I may have to try to guess the link with 3 or 4 :-D
