Beach by Pier, Ramsey
Film crew on Ramsey beach by pier this morning 05 July 04. Thanks Nigel for your submission.

Beach, Port Erin
Awoke to see a 40 ft white boat 'aground' on centre of the beach - just at low water. Opened the flat window to hear in a loud London accent 'Get out of the water !' With binoculars could see film crew, with the two 'actor guys' in holiday gear on the flying bridge of the boat - one pointing inshore and the other searching about with binoculars. Stayed most of the morning - boat re floated around midday then the crew moved the the small jetty adjacent lifeboat slipway - and continued filming. ! Very entertaining !! (Wed 8th July 2004) Thanks James for this detailed submission.

Coastal Footpath, Port St Mary
I was walking the coastal footpath on July 3, 2004. I saw the film crews near "The Chasms" between Port Saint Mary and the Calf of Man. There were dead sheep spread out (a bit odd) and the crew seemed to be very near the actual cliff edges. There was a sort of parking lot area (trailers and cars about) that I walked through as I followed the footpath. I had to ask someone where to continue with the path, as it went over a wall nearby.
Thanks Cindy for your submission.

Niarbyl Beach, Dalby
We were visiting from Canada to see your lovely island and to visit relatives and were staying at Cosy Cottage in Dalby. The whole film caravan came in around 10pm and went down to Niarbyl beach 04 Jul I either to do a night shot or an early morming filming. Thanks Christy for your submission.
