‘The Moonstone’ – King Bert Productions Ltd


This period drama is based on Wilkie Collins’ ‘The Moonstone’, set in the late 1840’s and considered to be the first British detective novel. The plot centres around a stolen priceless Indian diamond and the ensuing investigation into its’ disappearance and recovery, adapted into a 5 x 45 minute mini-series for BBC1 day time.

Filmed primarily at Thornton Watless Hall in North Yorkshire, Kaye organized the appraisal of period-appropriate furniture and dressing at the location with an expert valuer and the hire and purchase of dressing props for a total of thirty seven sets – in addition to all action props (including the Moonstone diamond!), animals, vehicles and SFX. This was successfully achieved within budget and with only three weeks prep time.
