These publicity photos were almost certainly taken by Willoughby Gullachsen on location in Egpyt. They are from the 1989 three part drama series, Vote for Them, written by David Edgar and Neil Grant. The series was produced by Carol Parks.

Thanks to costume designer, Janice Rider, for sharing the photos.

Below is the synopsis from the Radio Times entry of the series from the BBC Genome project
‘First of three episodes.
Egypt. 1943: Rommel has been kicked out of Africa and the fighting has moved on to Italy. The Allied troops still based in Cairo have time to think about what sort of world they want when the war is over.

‘Dread Poets Society’ – TX Card from Dave Bushell

Dread Poets Society

TX card for ‘Dread Poets Society’

This was a hosted production shot on location at Oxley Carriage Sidings, Wolverhampton. Two railway carriages were rewired by Derek McCulloch and his sparks so that I could reproduce my take on what it would feel like to be in a train during a thunderstorm. The weather was appalling, as I remember, and we had to deal with a number of equipment problems. Still it was interesting to do (and I like trains!).

Producers were George Faber and Estelle Daniel, director Andy Wilson and the cast were Benjamin Zephaniah, Timothy Spall, Alex Jennings, Dexter Fletcher, Alan Cumming and Emma Fielding. Transmission was in 1992.
