Merseyside is transformed in a week of filming by the BBC, Sky, and Pepsi.
Merseyside is well-known as a popular filmmaking location, with many directors flocking to the area.
Outside of London, Liverpool is the second most filmed city in the UK, and it’s simple to see why.
Film directors frequently use the city as the appropriate location for their films because of its historic buildings and renowned shoreline.

Beaches and a rich historical backdrop attract visitors to towns like Wirral and Sefton.
The city just welcomed a huge new film and television studio, bringing it closer to its goal of becoming the “Hollywood of the North.”
The Depot is made up of two sound-proofed, 20,000 sq ft film and TV production buildings that are hoped to give Liverpool the entire package for film and TV producers, bringing millions of pounds into the local economy.
Multiple productions for advertisements, television, and cinema have been filming across Merseyside this week.
