All roads crew 2


Hovercam is based on a large site near Plymouth, but our work takes us all over Britain and often beyond.  Here’s a selection of our work.

James May’s Cars of the People
Two helicopters working in perfect harmony with several cameras on the ground at Dunkeswell Airfield in Devon to produce a shot with added impact… you’ll have to wait and see when this one is transmitted!

Powerboats 2

P1 Powerboats
Exciting chases over the water.   The boat crews told us we were having more fun up in the air than they were in the sea below them – but we hope to be back for more powerboat racing in the near future!

London Array Wind Farm
The wind farm is some 12 miles off the Kent coast – perfect for sunset pictures of Europe’s largest array of turbines and their ancillary facilities both on and off-shore.



Inside Men (BBC)

Chasing a getaway car over the Severn Bridge, and following the action from our vantage point above the docklands town of Sharpness, Inside Men gave us a chance to work closely with the director and bring added excitement to this BBC drama series.

Rosamund Pilcher dramas (ZDF)
Frankfurt Film Produktion’s long-running series based on stories by the English romantic novelist is a big hit in Germany – and brings plenty of German visitors to see the beauty of the West Country!

All Roads Lead Home (BBC)

Two gorgeous days in Snowdonia, shooting pictures of the Ffestiniog Railway, slate mine workings and of course the mountains.  Sunshine and cloud mottled the landscape and made shooting a little tricky, but the results were well worthwhile.  We also shot the Cornwall programme in this series, chasing trains over the Tamar bridge, and the dramatic cliffs and seascapes of the West Country.

Don’t Tell The Bride (BBC3)
She wasn’t expecting this – not only a helicopter ride to the church, but some spontaneous air-to-air filming when the helicopter called in at our base at Staddon Heights. Truly a day to remember!
Fish Town – Brixham (Sky Atlantic)
Getting up at the crack of dawn didn’t stop us enjoying this one – the patches of mist in the valley floors and a soft orange sunrise over the English Channel, and some dramatic fishing action in the coastal waters made it a shoot to remember.
