Under the heading TV drama filming in Berwick
the Berwickshire has a short front pge item on the 'shooting' of a drama -as yet untitled-outside Berwick Police Station in Church Street. It is apparently about a police detective who relocates to the North East and 'finds himself up against not only hardened criminals but prejudice and corruption within the force' Berwick seem a rather unlikely setting given its very low crime rate but perhaps the series will inspire the local underworld to try harder.
Hutton Think Tank have got quite excited about the use of local locations to attract film makers. HT2 film director has long been working on a script set in the Hutton area entitled 'The Lone Stranger' about someone working undercover in the area to expose institutionlised some thing or other for a 'drama documentary' . The suggestion that he play the local milkman has been abandoned for lack of suitable lighting at 4am and it may be that he takes on the role of a crusading postman. Postman see all kinds of things we others miss but the script writers have yet to develop much of a plot. The film director is sad about losing the (milk) plot as he had designed a very exciting Milk Float chase through Hutton and Paxton villages and had an acceptance from Jason Button as one of the two drivers in a fierce cut throat competition to be the first to deliver an introductory offer of Yakult to Paxton House. It was all to end in a shoot out at the Red Squirrell Hide-the protection of these endangered creatures was to be a sub plot.Alas. Back to the drawing board.
