Oddity 1

This photo is an oddity; judging by the scene, it was taken on the set of Musical Rooms, but it's not a still from that episode (also, there's a boom mic in frame). Rehearsals maybe?

Stacks Image 3086

This is a scan from the British TV guide/magazine Radio Times, from the 22-28 June 1991 issue.

The photo used is part of a promotional shoot taken in a Glen Waverley public park. I have several others photos from this shoot, including this one, but
Radio Times appear to have flipped the image horizontally for some reason.

Copnal Court and Atheldene Drive were invaded by trucks during the filming of Bartons. Equipment handling for outside fiming ("O.B."), wardrobe, and make-up were all handled from these.

One of the show's composers, Royce Craven, built his own plane! He was the first person I interviewed for Bartons on the Web by the way. You can read that interview here.

Oddity 3

This is the bird feeder from The Barton League of Bird Lovers, but this is not a still from that episode.

In the episode, Natasha wasn't wearing her coat (maybe it's her own coat?), so maybe rehearsals or a snapshot by someone after the shoot?

LTR: Ben, Olivia and Natasha.
