A GERMAN film crew recently paid a visit to Launceston to film part of their mini series, based on a book by Cornish romance author Rosamunde Pilcher.
On Monday, the crew created their set in the Town Square, where they were basing certain scenes. Afterwards, they headed to Bodmin to continue filming.
Bringing thousands to the Cornish economy each year, this German film crew are providing German audiences with a taste of an idyllic, romanticised version of Cornwall.
The Post spoke to a member of security at the film set, who said: “They only film in Cornwall and stay for six months to film their mini series.
“Germans absolutely love Rosamunde Pilcher and her novels; it’s all romantic, everything has a happy ending, and they all live in big houses — it certainly isn’t Eastenders. The Germans lap it up.”
There was an air of excitement in Launceston as many local faces watched the filming take place.
