(filming the window-cleaner’s cradle scenes)
David: We were allowed to get in and out, but it wasn’t allowed to move with us in it. I mean, it was up at the top of a very high building.
Phil: I don’t know how you could have done it. I couldn’t even stand near the edge
David: Oh, I was desperate to go down in it!
Phil: I know you were!
David: I was so cross that I wasn’t allowed to go in it.
Phil: I know he was absolutely furious that you couldn’t go up and down, weren’t you.
Phil: The best bit was when we went there for a recce with all of the safety people to see how safe it was, and we obviously knew we were going to put stunt people in. So they whizzed the cradle out over the thing, the stunt man jumped in and down when the cradle, and it jammed! [Catherine gasps, sounding a bit horrified, while David laughs and laughs] For about half an hour! While I had, like, a baby - a very large 12 pound baby up there on the roof, thinking ‘Oh my g*d!’ I though we were going to have to send for the fire brigade to get him out!
