Heard from Mike at Cosmic Travel in Kassiopi there is a TV programme about why we go to Corfu for holidays. An 8 part programme to be shown starting the 11th of October (I believe). They were just finishing shotting it when I was there, could be intresting

We were in Faggins in Sidari in August when a film crew came in to film a family on holiday.

When I was in Kassiopi the two guys Mat and Arthur who were doing the filming were out in Kostas boat (Kostas Bar) while we were fishing, there was Kostas and a guy called Charlie and myself, so there may be a chance we'll be in the programme...Thumbs Up

It's broader based than that- covering English reasidents on Corfu doing all kinds of interesting work apart from tourism -  but also showing a lot of the holiday side of the island of course.

Jan, I was only posting my experience as a holiday maker of this filming thats all. I gathered it wasn't just about me fishing from my friends boat.

Sorry- when  you put 'we' I thought you meant why British holidaymakers go to Corfu for holidays - or as so many less do so nowadays maybe that should be 'why they used to'...

Sounds interesting - love the idea of being able to watch a programme on Corfu through winter months.

Addicted to Corfu and loving it!

Hi,
It will be broadcast by ITV. Can't find out exactly when yet.

The broadcaster has commissioned 8 x 30-minute series A Tale of Two Corfus, which will focus on the island at the height of the tourist season. It will offer viewers a “warm and honest” portrayal of life for emigrated UK citizens and their Greek hosts.

The series is made by Century Films, which is also behind the soon-to-return ITV1 series Poms In Paradise, a documentary series about British expats living in Australia.

The indie is now casting and is keen to film Brits working in Corfu’s tourism industry, as well as people who have recently moved to the island or are starting new jobs. It is also likely to follow the annual influx of stag and hen parties.

I hope they show a balanced view of holidaymakers, and not just the Stags and Hens who descend on KavosDisapprove

Thanks for that. Of course it could be BST! Wink

It seems rather late for this type of programme which might just suggest it will contain 'Adult' content??!!

I very much look forward to it airing in the UK at whatever time it goes out!

I'll watch it with interest, but hope it doesn't put people off, if it shows the worst excesses of Kavos.

Hopefully they show a variety or resorts-which could be a real shot in the arm for tourism.

Might show the worse of Kavos but I believe it shows the best of the likes of Kassiopi so balanced I think (well hope) dont think they would have talked to Cosmic and Pillops if it wasnt going to be
