Filmmaker Says Somerset Should Be Proud

After last year's devastating floods, a filmmaker who has brought major stars to the Westcountry, says we should be proud of what we've got on our doorstep.

Producer of Wolf Hall Mark Pybus  - who brought stars like Damian Lewis to Somerset -  says nowhere else could replicate our picturesque landscapes.

"You not only have these wonderful locations in their own estates, places like Montacute and Barrington, but you also have beautiful towns like Wells, but also as you drive from place to place you're not stuck on a road your driving through countryside that's second to none."

Wolf Hall is a TV Drama where Homeland actor Damien Lewis step into the shoes of Henry VIII, and so the crews needed to find authentic Tudor properties to film around.
