Downtown Abbey cailleach voices Bodach an Stòir film

A SHORT film – shot from the air – of the Old Man of Storr has been narrated by a star from the smash hit TV series Downton Abbey.

If you are watching the More4 channel this weekend watch out for the Bodach on the screen with the Downton housekeeper Mrs Hughes/Carson’s dulcet tones accompanying the pictures.

Production company True North TV used a drone to carry out filming at the Storr in February and the footage has now been made into a short film.

Scottish actress Phyllis Logan reads aloud a popular poem called ‘In Praise of Walking’ by Thomas A. Clark which is set to the scenery shots.

The short film will be one of 10 to be shown from tomorrow (Saturday) and Saturday March 26. The channel is showing walking programmes from early afternoon onwards and the shorts will be played before, and after, each programme.
