More details on Survivors series two Birmingham locations

Posted by Rich Cross on March 15, 2009

A few more details about the planned inner-city Birmingham Survivors series two filming locations have been published today in The Sunday Mercury.

The article reports that the programme will incorporate scenes involving the famous Birmingham landmarks The Rotunda and The Bull Ring. The report also suggests that all six episodes will be recorded in and around the city, and that much of the recording “will have to take place very early in the morning when the city centre is quiet enough to look deserted.”

The Sunday Mercury reports that production on the programme in the city, which is scheduled to begin in May, will last for four months.

It also indicates that there will be opportunities for local people to become involved in the production – either as members of the behind-the-camera crew, or on-screen as extras.
