THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING - EARLY 80'S

When passing the city centre in the early hours of the morning, drunk after nightclubbing, I noticed these Communist placards up on the Caird Hall. I remember thinking through my drunken haze that we had either been invaded by the Soviets or that there was a Labour Conference taking place!
Next day I went to check out what was going on and it turned out to be a film in progress. The Caird Hall was being used as a Moscow theatre double in the BBC film "An Englishman abroad".
I stayed for a while and watched them film a couple of scenes, complete with fake snow.
