Did you spot our newest twin lambs and adorable Aylesbury ducklings on ITV’s “This Morning” show this morning? They were on the programme live alongside Adam Henson. Ewe and lambs were very settled on set, relaxing among the straw bales. Despite a little London traffic, they had a relaxing journey to and from the studios, taking it all in their stride. The twins even got the nicknames Phillip and Holly!

The programme also featured some of our young Aylesbury ducklings, which are adorable yellow balls of down and their own duckling cam!

Missed the show? You can watch on demand at ITV here and appear about 1 hour and 20 minutes into the programme.

Living on a city farm, our animals are accustomed to a bustling environment and lots of visitors. This means they are calm, confident and relaxed in a range of unusual situations and our experienced farm team can also advise on ensuring conditions are suitable whether on or off site. If you are looking for farmyard cameos or extras, get in touch by emailing us at farm@mudchute.org to find out how we can work together!

Back in May, you may have noticed a few small signs up around the farm and vehicles up on our big field. We couldn’t say much then, but we can now reveal that the production team and visiting dogs were here to film Dogs: Their Secret Lives. Episodes began airing last week and continue this evening and next Thursday on Channel 4.

Here at Mudchute, we welcome dogs on site and in our cafe and are always happy to promote responsible dog ownership. The filming brought canine behaviour specialist Tamsin Durston on site to help a few dogs and their owners with some training issues such as jumping up, recall and giving up toys.

During the filming, we had some rather stormy weather, but the dramatic skies made for some lovely shots. Here are some photos from behind the scenes at the shoot. Thanks to the Arrow Media team for letting us tag along and choosing the farm as a filming location! For more information about filming at Mudchute, visit The Film Office.
