Standart daily

English rock musician John Lawton, who is former Uriah Heep vocalist, has arrived to the southern Bulgarian town of Chepelare to continue filming his documentary movies about Bulgarian cities and towns, the local administration announced.

According to the information, the rock musician had already visited Mount Mechi Chal and the sports center in the town.

In December 2008, Lawton entered the world of television by presenting the Bulgarian travel documentary series "John Lawton presents."

The films are made by the Bulgarian TV company Skat and they feature interesting historical landmarks of Bulgarian towns and cities, traditional festivities and interviews with the city mayors and local people.

Filming and editing of 11 documentaries are now completed, including the towns and cities of Karnobat, Sozopol, Tsarevo, Primorsko, Burgas, Smolyan, Pamporovo, Varna, Malko Tarnovo, Velingrad and Shumen.

At the opening of the ski season in the winter resort Pamporovo, near Chepelare and Smolyan, the Smolyan mayor Dora Yankova pointed out that the documentary had a great success and that it was a "wonderful advertisement of the tourism industry in the region."
