Does any one remember a Mars Bar Ad filmed at Selhurst in the early/mid-70's?. I think the football supporter featured was supposed to be a Postie and on his days off he toddled down to cheer on the lads enjoying the Mars in the process. I recall he was standing on the Holmesdale with a couple of his mates wearing the old Claret White and Blue scarf. Any one remember it or what game it was filmed at? Or any other ads/progammes featuring Selhurst?

There was a god-awful 70's sitcom about a manager which was filmed at Selhurst - can't remember its name, but Lee Montague played the Manager in Big Mal style.
Part of the 1988 BBC2 Film The Firm was filmed there against Man City, last game of that season. Noades apparently didn't realise it was about hooliganism and was v. upset afterwards.
Last season before the Crewe? game, scenes for a British film were shot outside the ground and my mate got paid £50 to be an extra. The scenes basically involved walking behind the old stand before the game with the extra acting "normally" behind "Dad & Lad" actors.

There was a tacky public information film done at Selhurst in the early 70s, I can't remember what it was about. pickpockets or something like that, and I remember the begining showing one of the Holmesdale floodlights.

Wasn't one of the Tango ads filmed at Selhurst ? I seem to remember Mr.Tango standing on the Holmesdale.
Also, one of the executive boxes in Old Stand was used in something like Minder (2 people were having a meal and you could see Palace game going on in the background).

I remember, it was about pickpockets. It was called 'Snatch of the Day'. Ooer. I remember the Tango one as well.

I think Ron Noades, being the money grabber he is, always had his hand up first everytime some producer needed a football ground to film in.

Next season Millwall are ground sharing with Harchester United from Sky's dreamteam. I bet they don't whinge half as much as the wombles.

Didn't Sean Hughes do filming for his tv programme from Selhurst once?

Neil the Eagle,
I think the 70's sit-com you mean was called "Feet First" and was more revolved around a star-striker who just got signed by a club.
The manager was called Harry Turnbull and I remember the first episode when the sriker got introduced to the club captain who sang the club's latest single which was called "THE CLUB"
It was something like..
" T is for the terraces full of faithful fans
H is Harry Turnbull, the planner of our plans
E is evening kick-offs, which we're sure to win
....and so it went on where each subsequent line began with 'C', 'L', 'U', and 'B'
I hope this jogs someone's memory because it is only my 2nd post and I could look very stupid if no-one can back me up on it!

Don't worry, I'm with you on this. Was the first episode about the star striker, who was v. superstitous, finding a lucky tooth on the pitch which belonged to their all time topscorer. As it turned out, the Manager had put the "lucky" tooth on the pitch about five mins before.
