The Government has given approval for a helicopter to fly low over the Rock on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of next week (16 – 18 July), in order to film sunrise and sunset over the Strait and the Bay. The helicopter will be flying at around 6.30 each morning and 21.30 each evening.
The camera crew on board the helicopter are working for BBC Natural History and Factual Productions who are making a new high budget wildlife documentary following in the footsteps of Planet Earth 2 and Blue Planet 2.
The new series, entitled ‘Seven Worlds’ will be released to a worldwide audience in 2019. One of its episodes will focus on Europe and will feature Gibraltar’s wildlife, including macaques, dolphins, etc.
