    The shots list currently lists the location for this clip as "Waterloo". However I'm sure that's a result of the commentator describing the skidpan as being "the bus-driver's Waterloo", which is simply a figure of speech.

    I think instead this is London Transport's skidpan facility at Chiswick.
