FILMING is due to get under way today on a production set in the Second World War.

Last month Mockingbird Film Company announced it wanted people to play German soldiers for what it describes as an 'unbelievable true story'.

Scenes are due to be shot at Didcot Railway Centre today and tomorrow.

The company is based in the West Midlands and, according to an article by Stourbridge News, the film is a 'short' called Francois.

The advert for extras requested that a German accent was 'essential' for the part as an extra.
