Did You Know?


When filming the crew wanted to use a Citroen 2CV as a mobile rig to hold a camera while filming some moving shots. This was needed because most filming was done on Sark where the roads are not metalled. However motor cars are not allowed on Sark so they had to remove the engine from the car to be allowed to use it. They then had to tow the Citroen behind a tractor (Tractors are allowed on Sark).

A morality tale
6 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Excellent film, but not made by, or for, the BBC , but for Channel Four, which may explain the other reviewers problems in tracing it. CH4 has shown repeats etc. A strange and wonderful story, full of mystery,and of course somewhat unresolved, which was what Peake intended in his morality tale. His other work has not been well filmed, the BBC did try, but failed. Derek Jacobi was sublime in the lead role as Mr Pye, a role he carried in the face of the unusual story context set in the idyllic Channel Island of Sark. Judy Parfitt was the perfect foil for his character, a masterly piece of acting to match Derek Jacobi's leading role.
