BBC Casualty film looting scene in night shoot in Penarth

by Editor

There’re many things that make Penarth one of the most iconic towns in Wales – its pier, its boutique shops, its community feel next to the big city of Cardiff, but what it’s also known for is filming, particularly Casualty.

Crew and cast members of the classic BBC hospital drama are regularly in and around town filming dramatic scenes in houses or on location.

In May last year, there was drama in a house on the town’s Clive Place as the bona fide Holby City ambulance was parked outside.

And, on November 23, that famous Holby ambulance sat outside a property on Merlins Close, near Cosmeston Lakes.

But Tuesday, January 9, had to be one of the most dramatic shoots we’ve stumbled on so far where the lights camera and action were rolling on Bradenham Place just off town clock roundabout.

One of the production team let slip the scene was a “riot”, “looting” scene, to be scheduled for the show three months down the line.

Rioting and looting? Surely not in perfect Penarth! However, that’s the magic of TV.
