Portmeirion have recently had another good run of appearing on several TV programmes during late Summer 2018.
BBC1's antique-hunting daytime show 'Bargain Hunt' shown on 17th September came from Anglesey but also featured Portmeirion. Although it was primarily focused on Portmeirion pottery, there were also 'Prisoner' references, including a homage to the show with a Rover chasing presenter Anita Manning around the Village. The show can be seen on iPlayer for a limited time HERE.
Also, 'Britain by Bike' on Channel 5 showed actor Larry Lamb being given a tour of the Village, and engaging with some fans playing Human Chess on the new permanent chessboard at the village (left), who erroneously reported seeing the series in colour in 1967 (despite ITV only showing it in black and white as the channel didn't carry a colour signal until 1969).
Coming soon is even a Bollywood film (below), which was filming in Portmeirion during August, as reported by eagle-eyed TUW reader David Austin.
