BBC filming new series of period drama Poldark at Bottle Yard Studios

A second series of the BBC’s period drama Poldark is filming at The Bottle Yard Studios in Bristol in the west of England. The new series is set in 1790 and follows Ross Poldark’s attempts to save his tin mine and escape the hangman’s noose as he’s accused of inciting revolution.

Mammoth Screen is building sets at The Bottle Yard Studios and will also film on location in Cornwall, Bristol and Wiltshire over the course of the seven-month shoot.

“We’re very happy to be welcoming the team from Mammoth back again this year and are looking forward to another busy and productive time with them on-site,” said Fiona Francombe, site director of The Bottle Yard Studios.

“As so often happens with a second series, needs have changed and requirements have grown and we’re delighted to be able to accommodate everything the production team need.”

The Bottle Yard has become the biggest production space in the west of England and is also currently hosting a second series of the US fantasy Galavant.

In June, The Bottle Yard became an official partner of the British Film Commission (BFC), boosting the facility’s profile in the UK.

“With studio capacity being a particular focus for the BFC, the team works hard to promote the studio and infrastructure offer throughout the UK’s nations and regions to international producers,” said Adrian Wootton, chief executive of the British Film Commission.

“The Bottle Yard Studios has become an essential part of this offer, particularly since the launch of the High-end Television Tax Relief in April 2013.”
