BBC drama Inside Men is using note counting machines from Cummins Allison as props in the story of a robbery from a cash counting business.
The firm also provided training to the actors in correct use of the equipment, and one of their service engineers was hired as an extra to operate the machines.
Recalled managing director Andrew Crowson: “We had a great couple of days on set helping to prepare for filming. Although the majority of the money used in the film was fake a small proportion of it had to be genuine for it to be counted through our machines, because of our equipment’s highly sophisticated counterfeit detection.”
The BBC used two of Cummins Allison’s large MPS machines and 20 of the smaller JetScans, which can handle 1000 and 1200 notes per minute respectively.
