Product Description

The famous North Wales resort of Portmeirion has appeared in cinema films, television dramas, music 'promo videos', advertising commercials, documentaries, travel shows and many other types of screen presentations. From short news reports to live events coverage, from full length movies to archive newsreel and from breakfast or morning programmes to foreign TV broadcasts, the 'fantasy village' has been used as a variety of settings - science fiction ones, medieval, Italian, comedy backdrop or the subject of painting and photographic outings.

Now, for the first time, all of the known big and small screen 'starring roles' from the Thirties to the present day are collected and described, with dates and details. The most celebrated appearances include the cult series 'Danger Man' and 'The Prisoner' as well as 'Doctor Who' and a host of other well known television shows. Movies back to the black and white days are included, along with famous films shot in the surrounding area, like 'Inn of the Sixth Happiness'.

Surprises are in store as sometimes viewers will not have even recognised Portmeirion as being the filming location and other unexpected appearances stretch from children’s shows and TV spoofs, to serious appreciation of the unique and wonderful ‘other world’ sometimes referred to as Wales' 'jewel in the crown'. The hotel's own presentations are included, along with commercial videos and DVDs, for completeness. From the time of World War II to today’s digital planet, Portmeirion has stood the test of time, unchanged, except by movie and TV production crews!
