Filming begins on Preston Passion in Frenchwood and city centre
Film crews working on a BBC drama of a contemporary re-telling of the Passion set in Preston have been hard at work today.
Local photographer Tony Worrall spotted the cameras beginning to roll in Frenchwood and crew trucks on the Flag Market.
The re-telling will feature over 1,000 Prestonians who are asked to volunteer as dancers and performers throughout the show.
Fern Britton will anchor the live coverage which is also set to feature three 13-minute pre-recorded dramas.
The dramas will explore the history and communities of the city ahead of the 2012 Guild celebrations.
It will be broadcast on Good Friday on BBC One.
