Lights, Camera, Action! BBC Film Crew Visits Tangley

In 2014, a BBC hour-long television film adaptation of ‘Professor Branestawm’ – based on a series of books written by acclaimed author Norman Hunter in the mid-1900s – was broadcast on Christmas Eve.

Fast-forward 12 months, and a sequel – ‘The Return of Professor Branestawn’ was created, with several key scenes being shot at our very own Great Tangley Manor.

Much of the filming took place in Shere and Wallingford, with Tangley used for several indoor scenes.

The Return of Professor Branestawm starred the likes of Diana Rigg (The Avengers, Game of Thrones), comedian Harry Hill, David Mitchell (Peep Show), Simon Day (The Fast Show), Ben Miller (Death in Paradise) and Miranda Richardson (Blackadder).

The sequel aired on Christmas Eve 2015 at 5.20pm, on BBC One.
