HOLLYWOOD stars Cillian Murphy and Tom Hardy were in Bolton town centre filiming scenes for a BBC period drama.

The British pair, who have previously appeared together in blockbusters Inception and The Dark Knight Rises, were filming scenes for the second series of Peaky Blinders.

BBC cameras were rolling in Le Mans Crescent, behind Bolton Town Hall, today.

A BBC source said the section of road had been chosen as it “resembles a London street”.

The road was cordoned off, with vintage cars parked on the side and male cast members wearing caps and carrying umbrellas.

Peaky Blinders is a gangster family epic set in Birmingham in 1919.

It depicts a gang who sew razor blades into the peaks of their caps to blind people.

Murphy returns to the show as lead character Tommy Shelby, while Hardy is joining the show for the first time for the coming series.

With all this CGI technology I hope they can airbrush out all the Poundshops, Bookmakers and Pawn shows from the background with it being a 1930s set movie... Joking aside having Hollywood come to my home town can only be a good thing.

1. It is the 2nd series of Peaky Blinders they are filming - the 1st series was shown late last year on BBC2, re-ear as they are "Hollywood" starts filming a BBC series! There again they could have come from Hollywood, Ireland!!!

2. Where they are filming there are no shops and only filming against the library/magistrates building and as such virtually nothing to airbrush out!

There isn't mas unemployment, though!!!! The UK has record number of people working, more than at any other time in British history.

Gangs, what gangs - I was in town both yesterday and today and there were no gangs. I was, unfortunately, in town on Friday night and still there were no gangs!

Therefore I'd like to see where you see these gangs!

Series 1 was a belter, and series 2 should be also. Looking forward to it airing again.

We have more people in employment than ever before, and that is due to ONE REASON only. The UK has NEVER HAD this many people in it since the year dot. I'm sick of hearing this load of crap from the present load of lying incumbents.

In the last ten years alone, the populous of London has grown by almost two million (BBC Panorama figures from two weeks ago) and the rest of the nation is overflowing to the gills.

Don't believe all the dodgy government propaganda about less people being unemployed. They massage the figures thus not counting anyone who has claimed Job Seekers allowance for over six months.

If you can't see the gangs roaming around all areas of Bolton then I seriously suggest you have your 'mince pies' tested, and soon!

I didn't say that there were less unemployed but I did say the there are more in work now than what there has ever been.

Why do you think they have raised the school leaving age limit to 17, and same next school year to 18?

In fact the population of London has risen by almost 4 million but most of those now living in London are either oligarchs with enough money to have their own country or many have moved south because of the jobs because that's were the jobs are nowadays!! Plus self-employed and zero-hour contracts are not counted and those who don't actually claim jobseekers allowance or those who have been refused!!!!

As for gangs there aren't that many in Bolton and its not as bad as your are making out. There have always been gangs in town- and I have lived here for over 40 years (except for a 7 year gap overseas) but even I used to hang around a "gang" with school mates up to the age of about 23 or 24 - so its nothing new and definitely nothing to worry about in 99% of cases!

Only because of the EU the 'mass' employment figure are at there highest. It is a false statistic, of which many are in part-time employment on shylock wages.

If you wish to see gangs you should visit Daubhill, Halliwell, Tonge Moor, Deane and Gilnow - if you would care to walk through one of the parks late on. They are quite illusive. A gang does not necessarily mean huge numbers. Gangs lurk, they (believe it or not) drive around in nice cars and hang around in houses these days and rarely spill out onto the streets except until the small hours in rather diminutive numbers robbing houses and drug dealing.

Ahhh I see you are speaking of the TC... no those 'gangs' lurk in the Town Hall pi$$ing on your chips and force-feeding you horseshyte.

On topic: Hollywood Stars - I think the BN is referring to the '666' clan... puppet tools of the entertainment industry that do not question elitist agendas... those who have questioned end up behind bars on drugs charges, alcohol related incidents or end up on the scrap heap... God I hope this happens to that Bieber kid.

Definitely not the fault of the EU!!! Or how else would you account for the so-called "mass" unemployed during the late 1970's and early 1980's when unemployment was far higher than what it is now! Remember in those days it was common for the best part of 10 years that unemployment figures were above 3 million and those figures were so-called "adjusted" as well!! But lets get this right in that period the number of "official unemployed as a percentage was about 12-13% for the whole period whilst in this recession it reached a peak of 8.3%.

Also lets not forget that there were 2 great TV comedy-drama's at that ime which should what we quite a few Brits did during that recession - one was Boys fro the Black stuff and the other was Auf Weidersehen, Pet - in other words it was Brits going into Europe to find work - surely we shouldn't be that hypocritical with regards to migrant workers!!!


PS agree with you with regards to Bieber!!!!!

If you wish to see gangs you should visit Daubhill, Halliwell, Tonge Moor, Deane and Gilnow - if you would care to walk through one of the parks late on. They are quite illusive. A gang does not necessarily mean huge numbers. Gangs lurk, they (believe it or not) drive around in nice cars and hang around in houses these days and rarely spill out onto the streets except until the small hours in rather diminutive numbers robbing houses and drug dealing. Ahhh I see you are speaking of the TC... no those 'gangs' lurk in the Town Hall pi$$ing on your chips and force-feeding you horseshyte. On topic: Hollywood Stars - I think the BN is referring to the '666' clan... puppet tools of the entertainment industry that do not question elitist agendas... those who have questioned end up behind bars on drugs charges, alcohol related incidents or end up on the scrap heap... God I hope this happens to that Bieber kid.
Definitely not the fault of the EU!!! Or how else would you account for the so-called "mass" unemployed during the late 1970's and early 1980's when unemployment was far higher than what it is now! Remember in those days it was common for the best part of 10 years that unemployment figures were above 3 million and those figures were so-called "adjusted" as well!! But lets get this right in that period the number of "official unemployed as a percentage was about 12-13% for the whole period whilst in this recession it reached a peak of 8.3%.

Also lets not forget that there were 2 great TV comedy-drama's at that ime which should what we quite a few Brits did during that recession - one was Boys fro the Black stuff and the other was Auf Weidersehen, Pet - in other words it was Brits going into Europe to find work - surely we shouldn't be that hypocritical with regards to migrant workers!!!


PS agree with you with regards to Bieber!!!!!
I guess we are non-Beliebers...

The UK has record number of people working, more than at any other time in British history. Gangs, what gangs - I was in town both yesterday and today and there were no gangs. I was, unfortunately, in town on Friday night and still there were no gangs! Therefore I'd like to see where you see these gangs![/p][/quote]Only because of the EU the 'mass' employment figure are at there highest. It is a false statistic, of which many are in part-time employment on shylock wages.
