On location with Art Marvik in SILENT RUNNING - Chichester Harbour and Chichester Marina in West Sussex.


Silent Running - across Chichester to Dell Quay Marvik and Helen  walked to the marina office by the lock where Marvik asked a member of staff to call a taxi for them. Outside Helen turned towards the harbour. ‘It’s nice here,’ she said, leaning on the railings and gazing out across the lake-like water and the surrounding flat countryside in the distance. The wide channel to their right led up to the small hamlet of Dell Quay, barely a handful of houses and a pub. Further northwards the water narrowed to a creek and then a stream and beyond that the South Downs.‘Quiet too eMystery thriller Silent Running, Chichester Harbour across to Chichester Yacht Clubxcept for those noisy seagulls.’ She squinted up at them. Then she looked despondent. ‘I should have phoned in sick yesterday. I’ll need a job to go back to, even though I hate it.’
‘We’ll find a pay phone in Bognor.’
‘Never been to Bognor,’ she said, making an effort to brighten up.
‘There’s a first time for everything.’
She smiled. ‘Isn’t there a saying, "Bugger Bognor”, by some king or other?’
Silent Running mystery thriller Chichester Marina where Marvik moored up in Silent Running‘King George V who died in 1936. The legend has it that they were his last words and there are a couple of versions on why he said that. One is that he was in Bognor in 1928 recovering from a chest infection at a wealthy friend’s house and when he was leaving and was petitioned to rename it Bognor Regis, as a mark of his visit, he said "Bugger Bognor!” Another is that on his deathbed it was suggested that he’d soon be well enough to return for another spell of convalescence at Bognor, to which he replied—’
‘Bugger Bognor.’
‘And promptly died.’
‘So what did he actually say on his deathbed?’
‘No idea.’
She laughed. Marvik wished he could prolong the moment but soon they’d be sucked back into the more immediate past, and her past, and the wounds would start hurting again.
Staring back out to the harbour, she said, ‘I hope Amelia Snow is an early riser.’
Marvik just hoped she was at home.
