Here is something I didn’t expect to see. In 2016, the ITV Network produced a four-part series called The Investigator: A British Crime Story, about the unsolved 1985 disappearance of a woman called Carole Packman. At the end of the first episode a reference was made to some police notes: One year after her disappearance, a woman who went by the name Carole Packman was found working in the Canadian Aerospace Industry. Accompanying the narration was a shot of a woman working at a drafting table; the pencil she was using was unmistakable:

And, as an added bonus, there is a Faber-Castell clutch holder near the top of the screen. It would seem that someone involved with the series is a Faber-Castell fan.
This is the first time I’ve ever seen one of the silver-capped desk pencils on television or in a film, so hats off to the property master(s) and/or set dresser(s) for the series (who can be forgiven that in 1986, those pencils did not yet exist—the Graf von Faber-Castell line did not launch until 1993).
