They are right pommy b's at Heathrow. I've taken to rolling my own film
into plastic cartridges and then just wearing my "Structure" pants [huge
pockets and baggy as hell]. I then just walk through the metal detector
"loaded" with film and smile. I used to use the lead bags. One inside
another and this seems to work, but how well I'm never sure, and so far the
never ending pockets have worked at all stations ;-)
