Harold Chapman designs sets for new Brunel Museum in Bristol
Apr 2017 27

Some stills from a film shoot for the new museum on Victorian wunderkind Isambard Kingdom Brunel which opens in Bristol early next year. We shot in Benjamin Franklin House which is just off the Strand where the American statesman lived for a number of years as a young printer in London in the middle of the 18th century. Here I created sets for the young Isambard and also for the young woman who was to become his wife. Earlier we shot in a water tank in Norfolk where I created an underwater set of the tunnel under the Thames Brunel helped construct and which was to nearly claim his live when it collapsed, letting in a sudden inrush of filthy Thames water.

To all the people of the world, take note, and carefully guard what liberties you have.
