News Image
The Bottle Yard Studios has welcomed the return of Andy Day as he films his latest series for CBeebies – Andy's Safari Adventures.

Produced by the BBC's Natural History Unit, Andy's Safari Adventures is a co-commission from CBeebies in the UK and BBC Worldwide for the international CBeebies channels. Filming commenced on the 40x14' series earlier this month and will continue for 13 weeks.

The latest digital CGI and green screen technology is being utilised for Andy's Safari Adventures as well as footage from the BBC's archive. The production team is filming in The Bottle Yard Studios' M3 Green Screen studio, using the giant purpose-built green screen measuring 80ft x 40ft x 27ft.

Fiona Francombe, Site Director of The Bottle Yard Studios, said: "We're thrilled to have the team back at the Studios for Andy's Safari Adventures. This is outstanding kids TV, expertly made by the world-leading Natural History Unit using the best in Bristol talent and companies. We developed our green screen studio to suit the team's needs for the last series, so it's great to have the team back on site picking up where they left off for this new show – which promises to be another feast for the eyes."

Andy's Safari Adventures is a continuation of the popular strand which comprises Andy's Wild Adventures, Andy's Dinosaur Adventures and Andy's Prehistoric Adventures.
