A film adaptation of the BAFTA-winning BBC teen magazine show "Friday Download" begins filming this week.

The show begins its eighth series on Cbbc in the UK next month. The weekly magazine show features several segments (aka 'Downloads') fronted by a different presenter. Each download features information on a variety of subjects.

Current presents Dionne Bromfield,  Richard Wisker, Shannon Flynn, George Sear, Bobby Lockwood and past presenters Tyger Drew Honey and Louisa Connelly-Burnham are also attached to star.

The four week shoot on the film will take place primarily in Wales, in and around Swansea. John Henderson ("The Borrowers") helms from a script by Toby Davies, while Jeremy Salsby, Jules Elvins and Dan Shepherd will produce.
