Mark Bostock (L) and Russell Barrett, from Paragon Mini, drive one of the new BMW Mini Cooper along a stretch of newly-constructed sewer in Hull, mirroring scenes from the film, 'The Italian Job' which starred Michael Caine. * The Yorkshire Water sewer which runs alongside the Humber estuary, is part of a 200 million project stretching 10 km and is 3.6 metres in diameter. * The BMW-built car was taken for the unusual drive dubbed "The Hull Job" as the finishing touches are applied to a six-mile tunnel. The tunnel forms part of the 200 million HumberCare sewerage scheme.

Film - "Billion Dollar Brain" - Michael Caine
Michael Caine, as the film's Cockney spy Harry Palmer, sits at a console of a 150, 000 Honeywell computer made at Newhouse in Scotland. It has been built at Pinewood Studios and is the basis of a remarkable set, occupying an entire soundstage, for 'Billion Dollar Brain', the third of Len Deighton's Harry Palmer stories to be filmed. The film is about a vast espionage network in the form of a giant computer complex giving out instructions to mercenaries throughout the world. It sees Harry Palmer attempting to counter the electronic monster and avert an atomic war.
