I've done some casual work on film/TV location, in the 80's and early 90's. I spent a few weeks in Hay-on Wye where they were filming something to do with the Jarrow March (I know, not very geographically accurate) painting the yellow lines grey in the morning and jet washing them off after filming, crowd control (!) the rest of the day.
But standards have slipped, I was involved with the tent hire for a Dickens TV series, Hard Times, a BBC Schools program. The producers wouldn't accept the winches being hidden behind hessian cloth, but had to hire in block and tackle to replace them with. It cost more than I got paid for the week and no one would have noticed. Well, maybe no one except Brucey
