    I think it's a Voigtlander Avus, Last of the Summer Wine, Hail Shining Morn or Thereabouts, used at about 10cm for one shot! It's a bit better quality on dvd.

    They used quite a few different cameras over the years, not one would have given a decent pic the way they showed them being used, and in one episode, it changed from a Pentax to one of those plastic imitation SLR viewfinder monstrosities.

    There are lots of Speed Graphics plus at least one Roliflex in "Queens Gambit" a Netflix series, it is also very good.

    I think I've just seen a LF job on a tripod in the trailer for Grayson's Art Club on Channel 4 - but couldn't get the reading specs off in time to see for sure!

    ETA - I've got the cricket on (God help me!) in the background whilst I am in a very exciting online meeting, hence why I've got specs on that I can't see the screen through.

    A Mamiya TLR (possibly a C2) featured in the episode "Murder in Season" of the series "Taggart"...

    I saw the Grayson's Art Club trailer again later - definitely someone with an LF camera!

    The "Rear Window" shot. Nearly as heavily used as that picture of Che Guevara. :D

    I wish I did :( I sold my TLR a Yashica. When I can get outside again I would like Heather to get my film cameras out and I aim to put a film through each of them before selling them I am never going to see out the project I started to buy and use cameras made since my birth in 1955. It failed to get off the ground my health is failing so it was just another of life’s unfulfilled missions Don
