TT movie on the way

A new movie of the TT to be shot this year could produce a fresh surge of interest in the races - and the Isle of Man.

The director of TT3D and specialist film crews are preparing for an intense fortnight's movie-making, shooting action around the Mountain Course from vantage points never used by TV.

The film's a sport feature film documentary exploring every aspect of TT - from its history to what makes today's top drivers 'tick'.

The movie's an 'in house' production for the Island, commissioned by Isle of Man Film and produced by Cinema NX.

Co-producer Steve Christian says test shots taken in 3D last year produced spectacular results.

There will be an interview with the film's director Richard De Aragues in Monday's Mandate programme from 7.30am.
