Hearts of Gold

This very popular Esther Rantzen series was produced by Nick Vaughan-Barrett and we designed the set at Fountain studios.Working with my design colleague at Red Rhino,Valerie Jones,this massive set was designed to trick unwary members of the public in to thinking they were visiting a small hotel.(with room sets at the rear to assist with the deception)Hidden cameras and sliding walls.These walls opened and exposed the worthy citizen to a 'Heart of Gold' award from Esther on the main stage - with a sizeable audience appreciating the revelation with family members present too.

The remarkably similar model!
