Patrick Hall, the head of post at LA Productions told Prolific North that every single episode from across the 6 series has been produced and post-produced in north Liverpool:

“The locations we use are predominantly within 20 mins of our production base in Kirkdale and we use as many local crew as possible, providing trainee positions on the crew as well.

“Local businesses and talent whether used for catering, accommodation, locations, casting or crew all benefit hugely from Moving On being consistently commissioned by the BBC.”

The series is produced by Donna Molloy and executive produced by Colin McKeown for LA Productions and Damian Kavanagh for the BBC.

Episode 1 of Series 6 airs at 2.15pm on BBC One this Monday.
