I've just noticed this on the maginificent Dissolute:

'September 6
'1966 - The second day of colour filming on 'The Avengers' takes place at Lord Montagu's Museum of Vintage Cars at Palace House, Beaulieu, Hampshire, under the supervision of Roy Rossotti.
'1966 - Featuring Diana Rigg riding a white horse, the footage appeared in an American promo reel for the series."

I has always assumed that the horse riding sequence in Who's Who??? was shot during the publicity photo shoot at St Mary's Bay, Dymchurch, Kent.

Am I to assume that the above suggests that the filming took place at Beaulieu on the September 6th - or that the sequence was shown in the USA around September 6th?

Blast! I noticed this morning that something was wrong and hoped I could fix it before anyone noticed.
The error was in the Slow Dazzle calendars, 1999 and 200 editions. I picked up from Cal's trascription of the calendars and never noticed. You are quite right, of course. Does anyone know the date of the St Mary's Bay shoot? I'll check the John Bates book.

Addendum: The John Bates book doesn't even mention the shoot, despite it being a showcase for his '65 fashions (or am I mixing up that shoot with another? The one I'm thinking of had those other shots with Ray Austin, and the telephone, bear skin rug, etc. on the beach).

It's sad, but the exact date of this photo series on the beach is still unknown. Sad

At one time I suspected that it was done around September 26, 1965, because the newspapers Daily Express and Daily Mirror by dated 27 september 1965 included the material from this photo series, but once I studied the subjects on Ebay and found the following:



ABC Television Picture. Back side states "Emma Peel (Diana Rigg) is new leading lady in The Avengers TV series". Date stamped 25th Sept. 1965.

This was a surprise, because it said that the date of shooting was done even earlier than 25th September!

There is other card with Diana Rigg from same ABC set:



date stamped on back side as 5 December 1965, while event took place on 3 December 1965.

Hmm, based on it on moment I think that most likely photo series Beach was held on 22, 23 or 24 September 1965 (one of these days), though of course it could be earlier. Confused
