STAFF at a North Devon holiday park are set to star in a new BBC documentary which follows the site's search for summer success.

The Holiday Park will follow the team at Woolacombe's Europa Park as they attempt to offer the ultimate summer experience for young holidaymakers.

Filmed during last year's make-or-break summer season, the documentary will focus on the group's battle to make 2013 a roaring success after a string of wet, recession hit summers.

Currently set to air in April, the documentary will be shown in three one-hour segments on BBC Three.

Europa, which first opened its doors in 2003, caters specifically for people aged between 18 and 30, and has quickly gained popularity for its stag and hen nights.

The show is the latest project from hit TV producer Lee McMurray, whose other successes include Bizarre ER and What Happens in Kavos.

It forms one of five new current affairs programmes which have been commissioned for the channel.

On announcing the show, Zai Bennett, controller of BBC Three, said: "BBC Three is the only channel dedicated to making meaningful, relevant, punchy factual programmes for young people in Britain today and these new commissions encapsulate what we're all about.

"Our factual and current affairs output win plaudits and awards and I couldn't be more excited about these new shows."
