The Pet Shop Boys released a feature film in 1988 called ‘It couldn’t Happen Here. In this video I try to find the outside locations in the film that were shot on location in Clacton in the UK.

The film has recently been re-issued on DVD and Blu-Ray – here is a link to buy a copy of the film on Amazon:

  1. Firstly when you say 32 years you means 12 don't you 😳 love the way you did this, very clear and logical. Thanks for sharing πŸ˜πŸ‘

  2. Thank so much. I'm a PSB fan and still have never seen this movie as I could never find it to watch anywhere. I know fans have been wanting it rereleased for years. Glad they did. Will have to check if it's available for download. I've been fancying doing this type of video for Newcastle film locations for a good few years

  3. Just want to say thank you and how grateful I am that you do all you do and to take your time for us all to give such wonderful interesting information, I absolutely love it. Thank you once again πŸ‘

  4. I loved this Nic because I spent all my childhood holidays at Walton on the Naze and Clacton. Memory lane for me. I remember those locations as they were in 1988. I was 19. Fabulous! πŸ‘πŸ˜€

  5. This is so interesting! Anyway, I'm quite surprised because I recognize an Italian TV channel logo on the top left corner of the clips from the movie you've used.

  6. Wow Nic, this video is so clever and very well thought out, very nostalgic, well done! πŸ‘πŸ» I walked down the promenade 4 weeks ago and remember seeing all of those places 😊

  7. I've really enjoyed this video. Thanks a lot for sharing it, terrific work you've done shooting all locations. I've been a huge PSB fan since the 80's and this clip is really interesting. Thanx again !!!!!
