Drone Filming for the BBC

BBC Canal Boat Diaries

Series One, Two and Three

Location: Midland & Yorkshire

We filmed several episodes on the BBC’s Canal Boat Diaries with Robbie Cummings series one and then when series 2 and 3 got commissioned we were chosen to film every episode.

Robbie Cummings presented this unique TV program  using his Iphone giving a unique perspective on canal boat life. 

Our  drone filming added a touch  cinematography to the whole production making it one of the most watched programs on BBC4

Extra Bits

Flying off a barge has its own challenges so most of the drone shots were taken from the tow paths with kind permission from The Canal and River Trust.

We based ourselves on Robbies barge stopping along the way to get stunning drone shots that complimented the ground images.

Each episode taking around 4 weeks to film and in the case of Series 2 filming started at Ellesmere Port and ended in the centre of Birmingham.

Series 3 started at Wigan going all the way through Lancashire then into Yorkshire and ending at Ripon in North Yorkshire.

Here’s a few stills from behind the scenes of Canal Boat Diaries.
