Against The Wind - Father Philip (Robert Beatty) gazes towards the Institutes entrance and then walks over to it. Is this the Palace of Justice in Antwerp? No, says Ray Glenister. It's actually Imperial College Road (formerly Imperial Institute Road) facing West towards Queens Gate, London SW7 which was seen in 'The Lost Hours'. (RL)
