Some famous Corfu Films

A number of cinema productions have been filmed in Corfu, including the 1981 James Bond movie, For Your Eyes Only. The most memorable scene of the film to be bound with the island is of the underwater ancient Greek temple, with a huge turtle swimming in front of the camera; a casino scene was also filmed at the Achilleion.
Other scenes filmed here include those tracing 'Melina' and James' walk through the town's streets , and Melina being greeted by Bond at Pontikonisi island. The film's scene depicting a greek wedding was filmed at the Bouas-Danilia traditional village (Μπούας Δανίλια παραδοσιακό χωριό).
Corfu also featured in a 1987 BBC TV series, and a 2005 movie version of Gerald Durrell's book My Family and Other Animals, both based on his childhood in Corfu in the late 1930s.

Plus many Greek TV series and advertisements.
