BBC Countryfile visits the Museum

Last Thursday (28 February), the long-running BBC series Countryfile visited Lyme Regis and met some of the Museum staff. The Museum's geologist Paddy Howe (seen on the left with Countryfile presenter Julia Bradbury) was involved in filming on the beach between Lyme and Charmouth, and was also filmed in his workshop preparing a small ammonite specimen. Filming also took place at the "ammonite graveyard" on Monmouth Beach, and Tom Sharpe of the National Museum of Wales was interviewed about Mary Anning.

The programme is scheduled to air on BBC1 in two weeks' time, on Sunday 17th March at 7pm. The photograph below shows Tom Sharpe and Julia Bradbury during filming. Both the pictures were taken by the Museum Education Officer, Chris Andrew.
