BBC Spotlight filming on Leader

BBC Filming Day with Trinity

A television crew from the BBC have spent the day filming on board Trinity Sailing’s oldest vessel.

The crew from Spotlight — the regional news programme for the south west — spent more than four hours on board 1892-built vessel Leader on Tuesday (April 14).

Trinity’s crew took the television team on a short sail, in glorious spring sunshine, around Torbay. Eagle-eyed viewers might have seem some footage on last night’s bulletin, where shots of Leader were shown during the weather.

Spotlight were filming a piece on board to go with a feature they are working on focusing on how the General Election outcome will affect people in south Devon.

Harry Gottschalk, Trinity’s Office & Sales Manager, said: “No date has been set when the footage will air, but we expect to see it on screens next week. We will keep people updated on our three social media sites when we know more.”

You can view last night’s episode on BBC iPlayer here until 6pm tonight.
