Approval has been given by the Government for a helicopter to fly low over the Rock on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of next week (16 – 18 July), in order to film sunrise and sunset over the Strait and the Bay.

The helicopter will be flying at around 6:30 each morning and 9:30 each evening.

The camera crew on board the helicopter are working for BBC Natural History and Factual Productions who are making a new high budget wildlife documentary following in the footsteps of Planet Earth 2 and Blue Planet 2.

The new series, entitled ‘Seven Worlds’ will be released to a worldwide audience in 2019. One of its episodes will focus on Europe and will feature Gibraltar’s wildlife, including macaques, dolphins, etc.
