Portland,Filming on Location

The 'Timor Challenger'(Ex Viking Challenger),has arrived at Portland.She has recently been converted for her new role in a new film 'The Boat that Rocked
Her Hull is now Red,with the words 'Radio Rock',above wheelhouse & on Both her Keel sides.She also sports a Radio Mast,Both Bow & Stern.She arrived at Portland from Hythe,where she may have received some work?.
Timor Challenger,will be used for Filming throughout may-june.The Film,revolves around a Pirate Radio Ship during the 1960s Music revolution.
A former Helicopter Hanger at Osprey Quay(previously RNAS Portland),is currently being fitted out for some Interior scenes.Once Filming begins in May,I will add more information for anyone interested.....
