Taken from a recent email received from Charlie Anderson at Leopard Films. Get in touch and have your say.
I work for a television company called Leopard Films. We produce a range of factual programmes for a number of different broadcasters, in particular the BBC. We are currently working on a documentary for BBC ONE about the increase in cycling and the phenomenon of cyclists wearing cameras on their helmets or bikes, to record their experiences on the road to give an insight of what is like to be a cyclist on Britain’s roads.
As part of my research, I’m talking to lots of cyclists to hear about their experiences especially with other road users. We are also working with cyclists that regularly film their journey’s and then post them online. I would be really interested to find out what it is like on the roads for cyclists in Cardiff, and if there are any problems in particular that cyclists face in your region.
To give a quick overview, we produce quite a range of mostly factual programmes for a number of different channels, including ‘Missing’ for BBC ONE, the long running series about Missing persons; the documentary ‘The Day The Immigrants Left’ with Evan Davies; Filthy Rotten Scoundrels, about flytipping; and most recently a 3D film of Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake for theatrical release later this year.
