We used to have this thread in the Old(er) Forums, but I don't think I can find it here, so here goes !

In this year's season of "New Tricks"" (number 10) in the 10th episode (and number 87 in total), the second post-Sandra/Amanda Redman, has Steve's son dropping in on his dad and abusing his Hi-Fi - a turntable I did not recognise ... and a pair of B&O 8000s

The quality of the New Tricks writing has gone down hill at a rate only exceeded by the actors abandoning ship!

This is not quite what your thread was aimed at and I have no idea whether it was ever officially done for B&O but I found it when googling B&O in movies.

Wow! I saw that movie several times (I had a major teen aged crush on Jenny Agutter) and even seeing it fairly recently never noticed that! Good catch!

Just rewatched The Dark Knight, and Bruce Wayne's apartment had a Beovision and BL5s.

Just watched Mike Leigh's movie high hopes from 1988, full of B and O

its strange really because the movie is very much of its time with old cars etc even saw an old ford corsair and Morris minors but in the scene with the B and O it looks so futuristic it seems out of place, also had a stacking system on the atyca stand

Kanye's "Runaway" film that he directed. He also owns B&O at his personal house. Love or hate the man, he's got great taste!

Just watched "L'amour dure trois ans", a quite entertaining French movie from 2012 or something. It's full of B&O and Louise Bourgoin.

Running in UK about one week behind Norway.

Are those sub-titles in Norwegian? I always think that Norwegian, Swedish and Danish have just about enough in common for everyone to understand each other. On the other hand in the UK  some people in parts of Scotland need sub-titling for the English!

These are danish.

The original languages (!) are danish and swedish - all swedish is subtitled, when aired in DK.

Broen is a danish/swedish co-production.

Looking forward to a next season 😸

At the 2012 visit to B&O in Struer with Beoworld forum, we've been shown a short clip with fragments of movies where B&O equipment was used.

Using B&O, we were told, was often done to genereate an exclusive / expensive feeling to a room / house etc.

The house in the Danish/Swedish series Broen III is packed with B&O, and looking at the cables visible I was wondering if the equipment has been placed there or was already there?

Houses like these are often rented.

I would assume, that the equipment belongs to the house.

Otherweise they probably would have picked some of the newer gear.

In the most recent episode of Silent Witness there is an ouverture positioned quite high on a wall, looks like it's not a prop as the trunking for the cables is clearly visible, couldn't see any speakers though

Just noticed in the series "Sherlock" that Holmes has a horizontally wall mounted BS9000 and a pair of BL8000s in his bedroom at 221b Baker Street.

The house in the American version of "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" that the killer lives in, very posh modern minimalist, has a BS9000 laying flat and a pair of BL5s.

As I discovered last night: BeoLab 5 in "Dr Who". But they were called "Daleks" ...

(BBC 2010 with Winston Churchill who used daleks as his secret weapon defending London)

Episode 8, season 4 of House of cards. A particularly weird scene featuring a pair of H8s.  Clearly the best way to avoid Bluetooth dropouts is not to wear any clothes.

Last night's episode of Million Dollar Listing New York had  a home with several B and O products. A wall mounted Avant was shown as it moved in to position. Also, ceiling mounted speakers that were motorized that I think were B and O and also a glimpse of what I think is an in wall B and O sub? I seem to remember a three piece product like that but do not see it on the web page now.  Also shown was a wall mounted iPad surrounded by a frame that said Bang and Olufsen and the interface/display on the screen said Bang and Olufsen. At one point the realtor described the home as having a complete home automation system by Bang and Olufsen. It even had rain sensors that would automatically close windows if it started raining.

Are you thinking of the BeoLab 15/16 combo? It's still there on the old site. http://www.bang-olufsen.com/en/sound/loudspeakers/beolab-15-16

Yes, Beolab 15/16. Watched another episode..more views of the 15s moving, the Avant moving, a room with four 12-3s, and a huge B and O box, perhaps a 75 or 85 inch Avant.

The movie "Look Who's Back," in the office of the managing director of the TV station there's a Beosound 8 on the shelf to the side of the desk, white grill covers. Funny movie too.

I just finished watching American Horror Story: Hotel, which is season 5. In the penthouse where the "Countess" lives, there's a stereo on the side, oddly it's a series of large boxes that look expensive, though I can't tell the maker, a turntable, lots of LPs, and a pair of Beolab 12s, not sure which ones but they are aluminum, mounted on low floor stands that sit them close to the floor on each side of the table where the components are, and you can definitely see the ALT lenses. Weird thing is that there are what appear to be amps in the stacks of components.
