BBC production going green, slowly

The production team on the BBC drama Being Human is taking baby steps toward going green, earning praise from the Center for Social Media at American University. There are now recycling bins on the set and in offices, and staffers are working on using less paper for scripts and call sheets, reports blogger Andrew Buchanan. He adds, “OK, it won’t make the series carbon neutral, but it’s a great first step. . . . It would be great if all productions everywhere go carbon neutral as soon as possible, but entrenched behavior and customs take a while to change.” The center offers a Code of Best Practices for Sustainable Filmmaking for ideas on how to go green. The BBC show, by the way, is about a werewolf, vampire and ghost who share an apartment. No word if their abode is carbon neutral.
