A new children's sci-fi adventure series being shown on CBBC has been filmed in and around the Bristol area.

The 13-part series called The Sparticle Mystery has been made by the team behind the Bafta award-winning drama Summerhill.

The show features a group of children who run a world, without adult supervision, in which they attempt to build a society for themselves from scratch.

Filmed entirely on location in Bristol, Bath, Corsham in Wiltshire and Tetbury in Gloucestershire, the series has been written and created by Alison Hume and produced by Stephen Smallwood.

Executive Producer at CBBC Sue Nott said: "We're very excited to be bringing contemporary new British drama to CBBC, with an empowering adventure which has children very much at its heart."

The Sparticle Mystery cast includes Wesley Nelson from Where the Heart Is, as Jeffrey, and Jerome Holder from Tracy Beaker and Holby City as Callum.

Local lad Olly Bell, 10, who is from Bristol plays Liam in the show.

Bristol-based South West Screen also worked on the series, helping with the production and advising on crew and assisting with set visits.

The Sparticle Mystery can be seen on CBBC from Monday to Thursday until 7 March.
