The One show Filmed in St.albans
(20th May 2016)
The BBC start Alex Jones from the One Show was being filmed riding a Suzuki motor bike past the city's iconic and historic landmark Abbey Gate way Between St.albans school and the Abbey.
Crew were filming scenes for new idents to be shown before the live magazine programme is aired – with St Albans expected to feature in The One Show’s pre-title within the next few weeks.
The Suzuki motorbike, which had its wheels firmly attached to a trailer towed by a Nissan, was driven towards Ye Olde Fighting Cocks pub and Verulamium Park, and was then to be transported to other parts of Herts before travelling on to Henley.
Looking relaxed while on location, the production staff and film crew - who took a few selfies - called out to Alex “come on Jonesy” before she carefully climbed onto the motorbike, and had her hair brushed into place.
She was then advised against “leaning too much” on the Suzuki before they all set off from Romeland through the Abbey Gateway, down Abbey Mill Lane.
In between filming, the production staff - one of whom lives in St Albans - told the Herts Advertiser that they settled on visiting this city because of its proximity to a film and TV grip equipment hire firm operating in the district.
Alex added: “It is a lovely place.”.
