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.


Our orphan lambs have caught the eye of the cameras! BBC film crews have been on site with little Bo and Belle, filming first for BBC This Week, then for the BBC News at Six. The BBC This Week episode aired on the 9th of April and features not just our lambs, but some fantastic view of the farm and its residents!

Here is a clip featuring Bo and Belle:


You can watch the entire episode on iplayer here and we feature from 20:15.
