Ballet Shoes

I've been over with the BBC today, at Reculver, where they were filming a sequence for the new film-length dramatisation of 'Ballet Shoes', the classic novel by Noel Streatfeild, which will appear on BBC One over Christmas.

Set in Thirties London, Ballet Shoes tells the story of orphans Pauline, Petrova and Posy Fossil, who are adopted by an eccentric explorer, named Gum, and raised as sisters, one of whom becomes a pilot; hence the aircraft sequence!

Victoria Wood, Richard Griffiths and Marc Warren are among those in the cast and today involved the filming of a biplane sequence, using Terry Brown's classic 'Stampe'. Does anyone recognise the shady-looking extra in the photo?

It's not me!
