In pictures: Behind the scenes on Gone

Filming Gone

Newsround's special programme on death was filmed in Bristol. It took a day in February 2009 to get all the outside shots we needed.

We filmed a lot on a particular street - this one! But it's the middle of the day, so how did we keep it so quiet?

We were able to get the local council to close the road! It was important because a lot of our crew were working from the road and wouldn't have been safe otherwise.

Barney filming Gone

The presenter of Gone is CBBC's Barney. His Granddad died a couple of years ago.

Sadly the weather wasn't the best at times. No umbrellas for the crew or Barney though!

Filming Gone

Barney had to be filmed from a lot of different angles. The person in the woolly hat is Tim, the director of the programme.

Tim is in charge of how Gone looks on screen. Here he's telling Barney and the crew exactly what sort of shots he wants them to get.

Filming Gone

For some parts of the programme Barney needed to be walking along while being filmed. To do this the cameraman uses a special piece of kit called a Steadicam.

Tim had to make sure the cameramen were filming the things he wanted. He's watching what they're filming on a tiny TV screen called a monitor.

Filming Gone in Bristol

On the programme it looks like all the children live in the street. They don't really. We filmed them in their homes and made it look like they lived close to each other.
