The dawn of an idea with the

The National Pigeon Association was contacted to supply fancy pigeons and handlers for the pigeon club meeting scene in the film "Creation", the life story of Charles Darwin from an adaptation of Randal Keynes' book "Annie's Box".
The filming took place in the picturesque town of Bradford-on-Avon at the end of November 2008. The pigeon meeting scene was filmed at "The Hop Pole" public house.
