Seaham ice cream parlour in TV documentary

Have your say

AN ice cream parlour is set to take centre stage in a national TV documentary.

Lickety Split in Seaham has been filmed by a London-based television company for a show for Sky Atlantic, called Twin Towns, which will be broadcast in 2013.

Twin Towns will be a factual series looking beneath the skin of UK and US culture.

Lickety Split’s owner Cindy Bettcher was present when filming took place.

She said: “There were about 30 people here in total. There were two people from the televison company.”

A Washington family is also taking part in the series.
