“The Town Council were really supportive of this project, and when aired will show Sandown, and the Island, as the stunning location that it is.

“We are glad we could help this production, and we look forward to seeing it in 2021 – it has already generated considerable local and national interest”.

Deputy Mayor Paul Brading added:

“The production has also provided opportunities for local actors and businesses, and hopefully will attract other TV and Film opportunities in the future”.

As previously reported by Island Echo, filming has been taking place on Brading Downs overlooking Sandown Bay this week.

Umm – not a bbc channel.
It’s owned by the bbc and itv.
It makes a profit which is returned to the owners.
Get your facts right.

Nathaniel Parker best known as ‘Inspector Lynley’, and Geraldine James for her part in ‘Jewel in the Crown’. Both well established actors with a string of credits to their names.

If anyone wants to film a horror story on the Isle of Wight, just stick a web-cam on a pole overlooking St. Mary’s roundabout. Or even near the floating skip.

Does it still count as “floating” if it spends most of its time broken down on the shore?
 
Seriously though, at least I know what the tents are for now, I thought it might be a pop-up testing center but this may just possibly give a welcome boost to the local economy
