Mid Morning Mix // Gardening & Green Spaces// Style// Explore Switzerland// Art & Culture// Travel // Nov. 7, 2017

Cornelius joins us in the studio to share some of the anecdotes he uncovered whilst researching this book, such as the location scouting mission of the 007 team to find a Bond bad-guy lare, which resulted in them finishing construction on a revolving restaurant...

Cornelius Schregle's BACKDROP SWITZERLAND is a research book and a collection of iconic photographs of foreign films that use Switzerland as a backdrop.

The book is chronicologically ordered; from 1900 to the present. It contains mostly British and American films, with actors such as Liz Taylor, Clint Eastwood, Sean Connery, Michael Caine, Robert Redford, Leonardo DiCaprio and Audrey Hepburn across the pages; having shot movies with beautiful Swiss scenery as a backdrop. 

Cornelius explains some of the most used locations and the challenges of shooting movies in Switzerland, as well as taking us through his journey to put this incredible collection together.
