It's the film that's got everyone talking - breaking box office records around the world. Star Wars: The Force Awakens may be the latest Hollywood blockbuster - but it WAS filmed, in part, in our region - at Pinewood Studios and at Greenham Common in Berkshire.

The film is on at cinemas across the region. Making an appearance, at Whiteley in Hampshire was David Prowse, who starred as Darth Vader in the original Star Wars trilogy.

He was also, of course, for those who remember, the Green Cross Code man, who taught children, on TV, about road safety.
