CBeebies series Andy’s Prehistoric Adventures has begun filming at The Bottle Yard studios in Bristol.
The third series of the show, which will comprise 25 episodes, is produced by the BBC’s Natural History Unit, and is a co-commission from CBeebies in the UK and BBC Worldwide.

Filming begins this week for 16 weeks.
Using footage from the BBC’s archive, Andy’s Prehistoric Adventures uses digital CGI and green screen technology to allow presenter Andy Day to go on a series of journeys into prehistoric times.

The team will use 10,000 sq ft of production space at The Bottle Yard, half of which is being used for green screen equipment, the other half for set building.
Series Producer Adam Oldroyd says: “We're delighted to be bringing Andy's Prehistoric Adventures to The Bottle Yard Studios.

"As a BBC Bristol production it's great to have a studio here in the city, with the facilities, expertise and space to allow us to fully realise such a complex and ambitious series.”
The show is a continuation of Andy’s Wild Adventures and Andy’s Dinosaur Adventures strand.

This time Andy will meet some of the prehistoric animals that followed in the footsteps of the dinosaurs, including the woolly mammoth and sabre toothed cats.
The largest studio in the West of England, The Bottle Yard has attracted major UK and international productions, including BBC1 dramas Poldark and Sherlock, BBC2’s drama Wolf Hall and Disney/ABC Studios’ musical comedy Galavant.
