Benidorm donkey kitsch

Today I was on the set of Benidorm, the TV sitcom, with a group of school children. We watched the making of a one minute scene on location in a Benidorm bar. It took numerous retakes and about an hour to complete, with about a hundred people (actors, producers, directors, floor managers, technicians etc.) One minute. How expensive is television!

I cannot show any photos of the school visit, for legal reasons, not any photos of the scene being recorded, for copyright reasons. So here is the kitsch donkey on the reception desk of the “Benidorm” hotel, in the mock up hotel set on the edge of the resort.



About Gareth Thomas

A fairly mixed career starting as an aircraft technician and later Franciscan friar eventually led into secondary school teaching. I settled in Spain where I teach Geography part-time and spend the rest of my time looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca. I have three blogs: a geography blog and a donkey blog begun in 2015, plus an old donkey blog which ran from 2010 to 2015.
