This is why Ainsdale woods has been transformed into a Second World War army camp

Scenes are being filmed for an "epic drama" starring Sean BEAn

Quote
Ainsdale woods has been transformed into a Second World War army camp for the filming of a major new TV drama starring Sean Bean.

Extras in military fatigues have been spotted filming for World On Fire in an area of woodland dressed with tents, military sand bags, fake rabbits and birds.

Signs for an officers' area and medical tent plus machine guns, army vehicles and a gun carrier are also decorating the set in Ainsdale National Nature Reserve.

The BBC says the seven-part series by award-winning writer Peter Bowker is about the lives of ordinary people affected by the conflict.

As well as Sean Bean - who filmed Jimmy McGovern's Broken in Liverpool in 2016 - stars include Hollywood actress Helen Hunt and with Oscar-nominated Lesley Manville, the star of BBC sitcom Mum.

Pine Woods turned into BBC film set
Quote
Formby Pine woods have been transformed into a film set ahead of a new BBC Drama starring Sean Bean.

The heartthrob actor has been spotted in the woodland in costume for the 7 part ‘World On Fire’ series expected to come to TV screens later this year and set in the forests of Belgium.

The brand new drama has been shooting in the woodland for weeks and walkers have been asked to either stay away or wait while cameras are live to avoid spoiling the shot.

However the film set has taken over the public footpath meaning anyone can go along to see the filming.

Filiming on Fylde beach is for BBC drama starring Sean Bean
Quote
The filming taking place on a Fylde beach this week is for a BBC war drama called World On Fire, it has been confirmed. Hundreds of production staff, actors and vehicles have moved onto the sands north of St Annes to capture beach scenes for the epic story, the transmission date of which is yet to be revealed.

World On Fire is described as 'an adrenalised, emotionally gripping and resonant drama following the first year of the Second World War' told through the intertwining fates of ordinary people drawn from Britain, Poland, France, Germany and the United States as they grapple with the effect of the war on their everyday lives. Filming has already taken place in Prague and other filming locations include Manchester, London, Paris and Berlin. Produced by Mammoth Screen which is part of ITV Studios, World On Fire is written by Peter Bowker, whose previous credits include the BBC drama Blackpool, which starred David Tennant and David Morrissey.Along with Bean, who starred as Sharpe on the ITV show of the same name, World On Fire will also star Academy award-winner Helen Hunt and Olivier Award-winning Lesley Manville together with rising British stars Jonah Hauer-King and Julia Brown.Damien Timmer, Mammoth Screen's managing director, said: “We are thrilled by the incredible cast and production team that have come together to tell this extraordinary, deeply characterful and intensely adrenalised story."From the siege of Warsaw, to Dunkirk, the fall of Paris and the battle of Britain, here is an epic story told on a human scale, with a truly international cast.”

The North Beach car park in St Annes hasd been closed by Fylde Council until February 19 to allow for the filming.

World On Fire filming: FIRST LOOK at World War II drama as Battle of Dunkirk is recreated on Lancashire beach for new BBC drama starring Sean Bean and Helen Hunt
Cast and crew gathered on the shores of St Anne's Beach in Lancashire for a reimagining of the Battle Of Dunkirk
•There was no sign of the upcoming BBC drama's leading actors, award-winning duo Sean Bean and Helen Hunt
•Production began on Peter Bowker's new TV series last autumn, with filming taking place in Prague, Paris and Manchester 

Quote
World On Fire has been billed as an 'adrenalized, emotionally gripping and resonant' drama detailing the first year of World War II.

Filming was underway for the the upcoming BBC programme on Monday as the cast and crew took over St Anne's Beach in Lancashire in an extravagant recreation of the Battle of Dunkirk.

There was no sign of A-list actors Sean Bean and Helen Hunt on location as filming got underway for Peter Bowker’s historical epic.

Men were spotted dressed in full military uniform as they sat around on the beach, perching on trunks as debris lay at their feet.

Extras were seen performing stunts on the sand, with one man mimicking an explosion as he dived off a trampoline and onto a crash landing pad.

There were also several tanks set up around the beach, as well as a makeshift camp with several tents flanked by vintage WWII vehicles.

Surrounded by the grassy dunes, the beaches Lancashire could be mistaken for the very same shores of Normandy where the Allied forces took on Nazi Germany.

The drama follows the intertwining fates of ordinary people drawn from Britain, Poland, France, Germany and the United States, as they deal with the war's effect on their lives.

Filming for the series kicked off in September last year in Prague, with other locations including Paris and Manchester.

At the time that he was announced as a cast member, Yorkshire-born Sean said in a statement: 'I am thrilled to be part of this ambitious drama.

'Peter Bowker’s study of the human stories that thread through this huge global conflict is fascinating and something I look forward to being part of on screen.'

The show will see Sean and Helen share screen time with a number stars, Lesley Manville, Blake Harrison, Yrsa Daley-Ward, Ansu Kabia and Ewan Mitchell.

Peter Bowker divulged more about the plot in his official statement when the BBC snapped up the rights.

He explained: 'World On Fire tells the hidden human stories within the big historical events we think we know.

'From Harry, a young English translator in Warsaw caught up in negotiations with the Nazis and trying to smuggle his Polish lover Kasia out of the country, to Lois, the girl who is waiting for him at home, a young Mancunian factory worker who will come to take all the opportunities the war can offer to live a different kind of life.

'To Nancy, a female US war correspondent who can’t find peace unless her life is at risk, to the Rossler family in Berlin, worried for their soldier son and willing to do anything to protect their disabled daughter from the attentions of the ruling Nazi regime. These are the stories of the ordinary people who shaped our world.

'Stories of loyalty and brutality, courage and fear, hopes, stories of love and loss, hopes and dreams forged in extraordinary times.'

The evacuation of Dunkirk was the largest military evacuation in history, taking place between May 27 and June 4, 1940. 

Known as Operation Dynamo, it saw an estimated 338,000 Allied troops rescued from northern France. 11,000 Britons were killed during Operation Dynamo, and another 40,000 were captured and imprisoned

Here's why you might have felt the earth move in Blackpool this morning - and it wasn't fracking
Quote
Did you feel the earth shake beneath your feet this morning? Scientists at the British Geological Survey detected what may have been a 'sonic boom' at 11.37am today, at the same time a series of explosions were let off on St Annes beach during the filming of a new Second World War drama starring Sean Bean.

BGS seismologist Glenn Ford said: "We have checked our network and we don't have anything that would be an earthquake. We did pick up some signals which are definitely not seismic, but may be consistent with a sonic boom. "The signals might also be spurious, and may be random. It's a very busy location, the Blackpool area. There's consistent noise from trains and traffic, so it may just be coincidental. "We can definitely discount that it was an earthquake. We are trying to establish whether there are other sources."A sonic boom is the sound associated with shock waves created whenever an object travelling through the air travels faster than the speed of sound.It is most commonly associated with military jets.Mr Ford said the BGS had been in touch with British Aerospace and confirmed that no jets were present over the Fylde coast at the time the explosions were heard.

 Minor earthquakes had previously been reported at Cuadrilla's fracking site off Preston New Road, however, there have been no recorded tremors in the area since December 14.

World On Fire filming: World War II drama resumes shooting for a second explosive day as the Battle of Dunkirk is recreated on Lancashire beach
Quote
World On Fire filming kicked off for the the upcoming BBC programme on Monday as the cast and crew took over St Anne's Beach in Lancashire in an extravagant recreation of the Battle of Dunkirk.

And shooting resumed on Tuesday for a second explosive day, as the cast trudged onto the beach in their wartime military uniforms to recommence another day of hard-hitting scenes.

The BBC Drama series has been billed as an 'adrenalized, emotionally gripping and resonant' drama detailing the first year of World War II and has previously shot scenes in Prague and Paris.

Although A-list actors Sean Bean and Helen Hunt are set to star in the drama based on real-life events, they didn't appear to be on location as filming got underway for Peter Bowker’s historical epic.

St Annes beach in February 2019 is playing the part of Dunkirk sands in the summer of 1940 for the wartime drama which is due to be broadcast in the autumn. The seven-part series stars Sean Bean and Oscar winner Helen Hunt, but neither was required for the St Annes scenes.Leading actor on set locally was rising star Jonah Hauer-King, who plays a Manchester lad called Harry involved in the historic evacuation of Dunkirk, which was a key incident of the early years of the war.

 Filming for the epic series has already taken place in Manchester, where Sean Bean’s scenes have largely been shot; Prague, which has doubled for Warsaw, Berlin and Paris, and also in Paris itself.
