"Willow Tree gets Down To Earth"

Members of Tiverton's Willow Tree Theatre Company will be on television next spring in BBC drama Down To Earth.

The 12 Tiverton actors took part in three days of filming at Tedburn St Mary and the Cowick Barton pub, for an episode featuring an amateur dramatic show to be screened in late February or early March 2003.

The group danced in three routines for the programme, and took part in a number of supporting roles, including a cameo speaking part for theatre company chairman Rick Barfoot.

The Show features a number of well-known actors, including Ian Kelsey who has appeared in ITV soap 'Emmerdale' and BBC hospital drama 'Casualty', and Pete Lee Wilson, also of Casualty and the recently-released film 'Blade 2', starring Wesley Snipes.

The stars are Pauline Quirke and Warren Clarke.
