Countryfile opening credits

For some reason, even after 3 years, we are getting lots of emails asking about the BBCs opening credits for the popular outdoor programme Countryfile, so thought I would give a brief post on the locations we used.

A few years ago the BBC contacted us at really short notice, asking if we could provide locations and models for there film makers to shoot and include them in the programmes opening sequences, Erm….ok then!

We chose Lower scout crag in the stunning Langdale valley for the “lady rock climbing” shots, the amount of filming equipment they bring is beyond belief, so we decided to stay on a crag with a short walk in.

For the “Swimming in a Lakeland tarn” shots, and the timelapse shots we chose Blea tarn, the backdrop of the Langdale pikes really sold this venue, and being in midsummer, the weather played ball (30 degrees to be accurate!!)

Above are a few photos of the film crew and Emily (Lady rock climber) and Matt (Tarn swimmer)

Fast forward 6 months and the BBC contacted us again saying they had a tremendous reaction to the locations and they were wanting to bring ex Blue peter and all round hard woman Helen Skelton to Langdale to revisit the original shooting locations, and wanted us to take Helen rock climbing, all good, but it was February and bloody freezing, but we headed out and climbed a couple of routes in the sleet before heading back to the warm fire of the Old Dungeon Ghyll pub for an interview we set up with local legend Bill Birkett.
