With the UK General Election looming, Sharon Edwards (Political Reporter for the BBC) contacted Gelder Group to ask if we could help with filming a piece for the BBC. We arranged to meet Sharon and her film crew at our Lidl construction site in Gainsborough, where we were joined by some students from the Construction Career College in Gainsborough. The students had generously agreed to help out by saying a few lines to the camera — stating each political party’s policy with regards to housing and construction.
The filming was a success, despite the torrential rain and muddy construction site. The students performed admirably, although a couple of them did get cold feet when faced by the BBC film crew. Luckily, we had Alan Smith (Gelder Group Site Manager) close by and ready as a substitute. Ever the consummate professional, Alan agreed to stand-in at the last minute and had his lines recorded by the film crew.
Hopefully, the piece will be aired on the BBC soon. If you would like more information, please get in touch.
