This is the definitive film on the world-renowned Metropolitan Police Special Escort Group. Charged with protecting and escorting heads of state, government ministers and the Royal Family through London and the south east, the unit is one of the most secretive in Britain. Filmed from a number of vantage points across London, this 30 minute HD film places you in the seat normally occupied by the principal VIP in the motorcade, giving you a unique view of the tactics and operations used by this media-shy group. Journalist Antony Loveless, who has extensive experience in the police and defence sectors, was given unprecedented access to the SEG and accompanied them on a number of escorts to produce this film. The result is ‘Inconspicuous Ingenuity’, which includes all-new footage of the group’s operations filmed from the ‘hot seat’. Highlights include an epic mid-afternoon run across central London, taking in many of the capital’s iconic landmarks, filmed from inside the lead Bentley in a motorcade consisting of eight vehicles and escorted by five riders. It also incorporates re-edited film from an escort in 2000 featuring a running commentary by the driver, one of the SEG’s most experienced members. Take your seat…and ride with the Metropolitan Police Special Escort Group.
