In spite of the recession in the United Kingdom, players in the tourism industry there continue to show interest in what Barbados has to offer.
And earlier today, between 8:30 a.m. and noon, six British models danced in the main street of Speightstown to the sweet soca music of one of Barbados’ most popular bands, Cover Drive.
Several curious tourists and Barbadian nationals stayed on to witness the filming in the bright morning sun.
Operators of a number of the business houses on the stretch of the main street welcomed the exposure their businesses would receive on British television as a result of the venture.
However, in response to a concern that in the interim the blocking of the street would impact business, producer of Thumbs UP Production, Katrina Grant, produced documents which showed that she had been given permission by the Royal Barbados Police Force and the Barbados Tourism Authority to close a section of the road for the filming.
In an interview with a team from Barbados TODAY, a member of the filming crew said the production would be shown on Sky Living in the United Kingdom. (NC)
