@SpeedofSound

Fair observation. Do people instinctively move away from where they perceive the problem to be located?

Head toward the uphill end. Perhaps its just a learned reaction from the Titanic.

Mostly due to nose wheel first touchdown.
Not saying this is the case here though...

Re: the pax with hand luggage.

It may well be easier to let a pax who insists on taking their hand luggage continue to do so; rather than having it dumped in an aisle as a trip hazard or worse the person attempting to return to their seat.
The people, including the crew, may also be in a degree of shock.

Any reason why they couldn't keep it straight on the runway??

They left the runway and crossed a taxyway......

Funny one BOAC.
Nose gear collapse by itself shouldn't cause the crew to lose directional control.

Lucky there wasn't another Aircraft near...

Don't know it it helps you, but from Av Herald
" The aircraft stopped on the right hand edge of the runway with the nose at the edge of high speed turn off Q about 1150 meters down the runway". No mention of 'crossing' a taxyway.
