Next entry: Funfair in Vienna

Vienna

Apparently half of the music video for this impressionistic balad by the group Ultravox was filmed in London.

The other half was in Vienna. We did it on the cheap. There was just us and Nick, our trusty camera man. We took an early morning flight to Vienna, ran round like loonies in and out of taxis as we filmed, and soon discovered that, due to it being the winter off-season, many of the splendid places we’d been counting upon filming were either shut for redecorating or covered with webs of scaffolding. “What do you mean it’s ‘closed for repairs’?!” We finished up in the cemetery for the shots with the statue which had been used for the single’s cover (a gentleman who made pianos for the rich and famous of his time, I believe), did the sunset shot, and then dashed back to London to start editing.

- Warren Cann, explaining the location details to Jonas Wårstad, as reported on Wikipedia

You can spot the London shots quite easily if you are familiar with Covent Garden.
