Found these on an American art site, turns out they come from here. http://www.the-archive.co.uk/lye_photog ... age_8.html There's some great shots to be found on the archive site. Also note the sticker prices of that line up of Minis :o

They are mostly base models interestingly - like the type supplied to District Nurses - perhaps it is a fleet sale when they were replaced?

Mini Moke in 1960's London during filming of Orlando a British television thriller series for young adults which ran for four series between 1965 and 1968. Made by Associated-Rediffusion for the ITV network, it starred Sam Kydd as Orlando O'Connor. 76 episodes were made in total, making Orlando the longest-running of Rediffusion’s children’s serials. The series finally died when Rediffusion merged with ABC to form Thames TV in 1968.
Most episodes were lost and skipped or recorded over but a few surviving clips were recently shown in the 'Footage Detectives' series on Talking Pictures TV which featured the Moke above.
