Film London and the BFI London Film Festival have teamed up with Transport for London to produce the first ever Underground Film Map.
A unique reinterpretation of the famous London Underground map, the Underground Film Map has the station names changed to represent the past 70 years of films shot on location at or near London Underground Stations. The Film Map features films, TV shows, the names of film stars and film-makers in the place of the stations where either the production shot or the star was born.
As a result, Waterloo Station becomes Bourne Ultimatum, honouring the film's thrilling chase sequence set and shot at the famous station, and King's Cross St. Pancras is renamed after the most famous child wizard of all time, Harry Potter, as the setting of the fictional 9 ¾ train platform. The Map also celebrates Barking as the place where actress Dame Maggie Smith was born and Rayners Lane in Harrow marks the birthplace of Slumdog Millionaire's star Dev Patel.
Other details featured in the Map include key film studios in the capital, as well as places with a link to celebrated directors, producers and cinematographers.
The Underground Film map is on sale from the BFI Film Store at BFI Southbank, London Transport Museum Shop, Covent Garden and online from TfL at www.tfl.gov.uk/shop.
