AN ITV drama which was filmed in Bracknell has been shortlisted for a National Television Award.

Unforgotten has made up the Returning Drama category, going up against popular TV series Line of Duty, The Crown and Call the Midwife.

In February 2020, film crews were spotted in The Lexicon filming for the fourth series of the award-winning ITV drama.

Production crews with cameras set up their filming location in Town Square.

Unforgotten follows the journey of DCI Cassie Stuart and DI Sunny Khan as they discover a dismembered body in a scrap metal yard, which the team believe has been stored in a domestic freezer for thirty years.
