Stars of the Small Screen

Lots of television cameras around at the moment, here is our round up.

Morgans Deli turned into a film on Monday  as a crew from Bafta award winning independent Television Production company Nine Lives Media shot some footage for the forthcoming series of BBC1 documentary Pound Shop Wars.

First broadcast on BBC1 in 2012, Pound Shop Wars follows the competition between rival pound shops. The 2014 series topped BBC ratings with 5.4 million viewers in February,  making it one of the BBC’s most successful factual programmes.

The production team interviewed an entrepreneur who is about to open a pound shop in our area.

Deli owner Lauren Morgan was filmed in action making a coffee.  Let’s hope she makes it to the final edit. The series is scheduled for early 2015.

Chiltern Open Air Museum was one of the locations used for the new popular Monday night ITV drama  Grantchester.
Monday 27 October’s episode featured the splendid Caversham Public Convenience as the scene of a murder. The post war Prefab from Amersham will feature later in the series

The  Museum is an increasingly  popular film location, and has been host to crews from  Horrible Histories, Downtown, Call the Midwife, The Suspicions of Mr Whicher, Boomers and Midsummer Murders.

Meanwhile, Chenies Manor will, once again, feature in this weekend’s episode of the Antiques Roadshow and then on Gogglebox. St Clement Danes will appear on ITV’s Tonight programme  7:30Thursday 22nd Oct.

    Lets hope the ” entrepreneur” only lives in Chorleywood and dosent actually open a ” pound shop” in the village !

    The shop keepers & local councillors should have a good look at the decline of parade over the last few years and the creep of charity junk shops we now have instead !
    I hope the sensible shoppers of Chorleywood see through this rubbish and support the really exciting business people that we have already with the cafe’s, greengrocer, health shop !

      Very well said Steve F, Chorleywood must avoid the decline that have befallen other high streets. Coffee shops, charity shops and hairdressers do not equal a healthy high street. The stop and pick up shops are suffering due to parking problems.
      Viva Chorleywood!
