FILMING has started in Almeria of a mini-series produced by National Geographic and Channel 4 by the BBC under the orders of award-winning British director Peter Kosminsky.
The series, due to be screened in a number of countries in a few months’ time, is set in Syria and looks to highlight the current situation in the Middle East.
Filming began in Almeria City last weekend and continued this week in Adra, with more than 220 actors and extras working with 90 technicians.
The team of 150 people is due to remain in the province for one month, filming in many different locations and employing more than 1,400 extras.
Born in London, Kosminsky is an internationally recognised director who has worked on an impressive number of productions for television and cinema including Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights in 1992 and White Oleander in 2002. His latest series has been welcomed by the authorities of its Almeria locations, who expect to benefit from the publicity.
