On Monday 10th August we had a visit from STV, to film for a future episode of The Antiques Road Trip, with presenter James Braxton.
The team decided that we should have a spring clean of the ship and workshop prior to filming. The whole team set about the task and by just after lunch everything was in ship shape condition. We were given prior notice of what activities they wanted to film and to this end we split up into teams to get these activities set out both in the workshop and on Board.
James Braxton (right) and the film crew did not arrive until 14.45pm so and after a quick COVID and Ship briefing they set about their task. Seven of the Volunteers were filmed carrying out a variety of activities. We were told that this would be about a five minute clip within one of the episodes to come out later this year or early next year. The filming did not finish until 19.15 hr on this very hot day. A big thanks Ron, both Bobs, Andy, Paul, Chris, Phil and Mick; who worked so very hard on the day to get the site ready and to take part in the filming. I do believe we will have portrayed the Ship and Society in a very good light. We do not know the broadcast schedule at this stage so keep an eye on the TV listings.
