A reality TV show set in Bolton, UK, has begun filming - and it is set in a bar-arcade in Westhoughton.


The show is described as a cross between The Chase and First Dates and was created by Ian Brown, who lives nearby at Bromley Cross. Ian, a TV editor and colourist, hopes that the pilot will lead to a series.

Like Minds is the name given to the show, which has a pub quiz theme. The current filming has been using small rig cameras and hidden microphones to pick up the interactions within the four-person teams of competitors.

Ian Brown told The Bolton News that the pilot has been filmed in Bytes, the retro arcade bar in Westhoughton.
