Stanley Van Beers,
Some of the series were filmed near where I lived in North Wales. The film company hired my pony for some of the scenes when he was rode by Hedda Tell (Jennifer Jane). I was fortunate enough to get a week off school to take my pony down to the 'set' each day and stay the day. It was quite an experience for a 10 year old! I still remember those days with fond memories especially when our local doctor was travelling past the set very early one morning. He did not know about the shoot and was very taken aback when he saw several men in medieval army dress appear from behind the rocks!
There was also an interesting scene on the lake when one boat (containing soldiers) were firing arrows at another. I was fascinated to see that the actors in the boat being fired at stuck the arrows in the side of the boat themselves!!
