Filming At Silly Billy’s


On Tuesday 15th September 2015 the BBC film crew came to Silly Billy’s to do some filming for the forthcoming “Happy Valley Season 2” which is situated in and around Hebden Bridge, and within the Calder Valley.

If you have not seen Season 1 of Happy Valley then  you can buy it from either Amazon or Google, as far as a brief search on the interweb goes I did not find a DVD from the Beeb.

Bill stated that the shop-keeper that was acting had about as much clue about shop-keeping as Bill himself did about Directing a BBC production. Nonetheless, the toy shop-keeper actor, and all involved were very pleasant to work with, said Bill.

The crew re-decorated the Toy Shop Window and Bill has decided to leave it as is for now as it is quite different from how he would normally dress the window.

Lego Ideas – The Nautilus

Being a bit older than some and young than others, born when England won the World Cup and now working hard at Silly Billy’s. One of my favourite things is LEGO. The Lego development team work really hard and I love their dedication on the web and development of various websites like Lego ideas

I have talked about Lego Ideas before, and the project that has caught my eye today is inspired from Jules Vernes, 20,000 Leagues under the sea, and the submarine popularised in the book and later the film, made 12 years before I was born:-
20,000 Leagues

If you would like to support this project then please register on the Lego ideas website and use the link below to show your support: and the developers website is here:

If you have any Lego Ideas yourself or are interested in writing a little bit on Lego or your favourite Lego Set on this blog then simply get in touch with me and I will assist in publishing your work:-
