British Film Commission issues its Covid-19 Guidance

Following on from other recent publications by the UK TV industry (see our previous article on this here), the British Film Commission has issued its own guidance on working safely during COVID-19 in Film and High-end TV Drama Production.

It has been prepared in consultation with the Department for Digital, Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) with input from crew and crew representatives, industry bodies, unions and the devolved administrations in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, and in consultation with Public Health England (PHE) and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). The information is intended to provide high-level guidance to manage COVID-19 specific risk in producing film and high-end TV drama in the UK.

Of course, there are variations in how restrictions are in place across the UK, so in Wales, do factor in the guidance in place here from the Welsh Government’s website here. https://gov.wales/coronavirus
