Countryfile

Roker Lighthouse

Countryfile is at the coast in Sunderland, where restoration of Roker Lighthouse is nearly complete. Ellie discovers the secret tunnels used by the lighthouse keepers to get to the light in rough weather and learns that, in its day, it was the most powerful lighthouse in Britain. 

Filmed in HD using a Sony F5 with a Canon CN7, Tokina 11-16mm and Zeiss CP lenses. Shot in a Rec 709 colour space with basic grading. Mostly shot with available lightning with the odd 1x1 LED panel.
