Dolphin Filming

FG ≫ 2006 ≫ Dolphin Filming

Dave the Dolphin has been in touch again, firstly with a full filming schedule from the BBC (their Inside Out TV programme will be filming a Folkestone Dolphin special), and local people really ought to be involved... The plan is:

Meet near the harbour on Thursday around nine. meet at the ship Sandgate around midday. Friday. Meet at Daves beach at nine. Meet at the Clarendon AT Midday.

They surely didn't mean to send the whole [filming](/wiki/#film) schedule to everyone, but it's interesting to see that they can afford to stay at the Sandgate [Hotel](/wiki/#hotel) on our license payers money... It's a bit of a walk from the Sandgate [Hotel](/wiki/#hotel) to [the harbour](/wiki/#harbour) isn't it?

Thursday 26th October 8:30 Meet at The Sandgate Hotel 8:45 Walk to Folkestone Harbour 9:00 Interview with Jason 10:00 Demonstration 11:45 Move to restaurant 12:00 LUNCH 12:45 Mark Simmonds arrives 1:00 Interview with Mark 2:00 Tony and Jason meet the locals Ship Inn 4:00 Tony Leaves 4:15 Locals in the Ship Inn

This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone sometime in '04. I had been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that so I am technically one of those DFLs you get now. This site was updated more frequently with a calendar of events + voting for best venues + things, and I know it was a useful resource for those who were thinking of moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. My name is not Gerald BTW, the name comes from a pretend paper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
