Is This The Most Popular Filming Location In The World? | The Golden Compass
The Golden Compass

In the disappointing adaptation of Philip Pullman's brilliant book, the Painted Hall in Greenwich played the dining room at Jordan College, the Oxford establishment where our heroine, Lyra (Dakota Blue Richards) had grown up. The exteriors of the Old Royal Naval College were then digitally expanded and enhanced to provide the base of the Magisterium, the untrustworthy politico-religious government of Lyra's home. It's all a bit sinister, really.

Hi James, That clip you link to visibly shows the Old Royal Naval College at 11seconds in! And those are both among the films listed on the last page of the feature. More
