BBC Film At Zagreb’s Famous Dolac Markets For Doco

A BBC film crew have been in the Croatian capital Zagreb where they have been shooting for a 30 minute documentary which will screen on UK television later this year.

The three-member BBC team, led by well-known journalist Kasia Madera, arrived on Sunday and headed straight to Zagreb’s famous Dolac farmers markets to begin filming for the documentary “Working lives”. The goal of the documentary is to show how ordinary people in Croatia are going about their daily jobs in family businesses which they themselves have started and which provide an existence for their families.

The BBC crew were blown away with the style of selling on Croatia’s famous open air market, saying that the market style of trading, comparing it to a ‘musical’, is rarely seen these days in Europe.

Besides Dolac, the British TV crew will also film a few other authentic traditional stories about Croatians working and daily life.

“I am glad that they chose to film at the farmers markets in Zagreb, the place which highlights our mentality the best and the story of Dolac will be seen by millions of viewers on the BBC, as well as the city of Zagreb and Croatia.,” said a market representative.
