With Buckinghamshire’s stunning countryside, quaint villages, grand manors, and the famous Pinewood studios, it’s no wonder the county has been the setting for many successful films and TV shows.

From James Bond to Midsomer Murders, and the Vicar of Dibley to Bridgerton, the county has seen its fair share of screen time.

The best TV shows and films of the past year were celebrated at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday – and several of them were partially filmed right here in Bucks.
