In 2007 a little bit of the Eurovision Song Contest came to be filmed at Dovestone reservoir. The ballad, ‘I’ll Leave My Heart’ sung by Cyndi was the entry in the UK stage of the contest.

This was the notorious year that Terry Wogan announced Cindi as being the winner of the UK heat only to be immediately corrected by Fearne Cotton who announced a group called Scooch.

Scooch singing ‘Flying the Flag’, not surprisingly,  came second from bottom in the actual Eurovision Song Contest.

There are only a few shots (between 1:13 & 1:36) showing the Dove Stone area but the video is still quite pleasant.
