- The scenes for the waste ground were recorded in the old railway yard which could be found by going through the viaduct arch on the Grape Street set. The old derelict warehouse building seen on screen was an original building dating from the 1830 Manchester to Liverpool railway terminus and the same area was later used to film the General Strike sequences in Granada Television's 1981 adaptation of Brideshead Revisited. The yard today, much refurbished, is now a part of Manchester's Museum of Science and Industry.
