AN ITV news crew is filming on Majorca today as part of a week-long series of programmes following the lives of ex-pat Brits who have ditched the gloom of Britain for the sun of the Balearics. ITV Central Television, which covers the Midlands area, will be broadcasting a five minute report from the island tonight and every night this week in a first-of-its-kind feature. The programme makers say that the aim of the show was to “come on holiday with our viewers,” and since arriving on Friday they have filmed the lives of ex-pat Reps, bar owners and doctors from Magalluf and Alcudia. Tonight's show will focus on a British surgery and the Pirates Adventure entertainment night.
Neil Bradford, who's fronting the pieces to camera, said: “It's been great fun seeing what our viewers have been getting up to. The Midlanders we have spoken to have all been really friendly people.” Neil and his crew will be paying the Bulletin a visit this week to document the workings of an English newspaper abroad, which is set to form part of tomorrow's programme. Tonight's show focuses on the health facilities of the island; tomorrow will look at the workings of the island and how it's changed, and Thursday's will show the sporting aspect, including the yachting opportunities open to people.
Friday's broadcast will review the week's events.
