TV drama filming, Stevenson Square, Manchester

As I passed Stevenson Square on my way home, at 5.30pm, a film crew was shooting a drama for Granada TV in the Koffee Pot cafe.

I made sure I was behind the camera and took a photo through the window. They were very obviously not recording at the time. Nevertheless, a member of the crew came over and asked me to ‘step away’ because I was supposedly ‘in shot’. If so, that camera must have a hell of a wide lens!

Good job I’m not awkward, because I was standing on the pavement in a public place and I don’t think there’s a lot they could do to stop me ;-)

A few minutes earlier, I passed the big screen in Exchange Square and saw the Masai marathon runners being interviewed on BBC News24.

    If the film crew asked you to move away from a pavement then it is illegal for them to do so. As you have a right to take photographs on a public path, or highway. The film crews do this alot and us intimidation. They did this on the film set of alfie in the northern quarter 2003. I complained to the council about this and they said it was illegal for them do so.
