BBC Filming / Crime drama crew to film in Gletness next week

FILMING for the Shetland crime drama will take place in the Gletness area of South Nesting on Monday (13 September).

The shoot will take place between 7am and 8pm.

Some of these scenes – at specific times still to be determined – will be filmed on public roads in the immediate area, so an occasional ‘stop/go’ system of traffic control will be implemented at these times.

“However, these should ordinarily last for no more than a few minutes at a time while actual filming takes place,” Shetland location manager Davie Gardner said.

“It would be worth allowing slightly more time for any journey you plan in the area during this time though.”

The fleet of technical support vehicles will also be parked in the immediate area, while larger ‘unit support’ fleet of vehicles – some of them large, articulated vehicles – will be located at the old Catfirth airbase nearby.

“Please be wary of this and significantly increased traffic in the general area too and drive with appropriate caution,” Gardner said.

“Once again sincere apologies in advance for any inconvenience or disturbance this may cause, but thanks once again for all your co-operation – something that’s genuinely appreciated.”

Anyone with questions should contact Davie Gardner on 07867 654 509 or Andy Ross, assistant locations manager, on 07963 713 446.
