British Airways travel destinations posters 1980s

Thu Feb 20, 2020 9:40 pm


I wonder if you can help me in discovering the destination from one of a series of travel posters by British Airways.

The series in question is BA1011 and each poster in the series is numbered DPXXX.
I have included as two examples I have found online. They are:

DP006 - East Africa
DP021 - Italy

I have found another five, none though are the poster I am looking for.
Also included are screenshots of the ITV sitcom Watching with the poster I would like to more about in the background.
This episode was broadcast in August 1987.

The other posters from the series I have found online are:

DP003 - Scotland
DP012 - India
DP??? - New Zealand
DP??? - Canada

DP311 - BA logo (could be part of the same series)

How many posters were in the series?
What years did it run?
Where is the destination in the Watching poster?

Am I right in thinking that these posters were not for sale to the public?
Where were they displayed?

Sorry for the barrage of questions but this I've grown to really like these posters and I'd like to know more about them.

Thank you,
