Blott on the Landscape
Blott on the Landscape is a British 1985 comedy mini series, adapted from the book by Tom Sharpe and starring David Suchet as Blott, the gardener in Handyman Hall estate that is under the threat of destruction due to the building of a motorway.
The following weapons were used in the miniseries Blott on the Landscape:
Double Barreled Shotgun
Blott (David Suchet) and Lady Maud Lynchwood (Geraldine James) hold a Double Barreled Shotgun in several scenes.
In several flashback scenes, showing Blott's past as a soldier of East German army, numerous AK-47s are seen.
Norinco Type 56
Along with AK-47s, Norinco Type 56 assault rifles are also seen, identified by the hooded front sight.
Bren Mk I
Blott finds two Bren Mk I machine guns in a wartime hidden cache in the wine cellar. He uses one of these guns to fire at his own gatehouse and blame the authorities in making at attack on "Englishman's home".
In flashback scenes, an SG-43 machine gun is seen mounted on East German watchtower.
Blott also finds a PIAT anti-tank launcher in the wine cellar. He uses it to open Sir Giles' heavily armoured safe box, and to damage the gatehouse in the final episode.
When Blott destroyes the gatehouse in the final episode, he uses one more weapon exept for Bren and PIAT. It is seen in darkness and only partially. What is seen allows to make a very vague guess that it may be a kind of 2 inch mortar.
Grappling hook launcher
SAS commandos use a grappling hook launcher in the attempt to reach the rooftop of Blott's gatehouse. The launcher isn't pneumatic as after the "shot" the scene is covered with smoke.
