TV Crew Filming German Drama On Tresco

rosamunde pilcherA crew from German television will be filming on Tresco this week.

They’ll be shooting a Rosamunde Pilcher romantic comedy in and around the Sea Garden Cottages and Abbey Gardens.

The British author’s books are especially popular in Germany. National TV station ZDF has produced more than 100 of her stories for TV, where the adaptations occupy a prime-time Sunday evening slot.

Her influence in bringing German tourists to Cornwall was recognised in 2002 when she was awarded the British Tourism Award.

Tresco’s Marketing Manager Alasdair Moore says the exposure will be good for all the islands and he’s hopeful that if they shoot goes well, the production company will return for more filming here.

The island will be referred to as “the Isles of Cornish” in the episode.
