La Perigouse Lozere

Episodes season 3: Gansari's Zombies (57), Bounty Twins (55)

A zombie also needs a break..


Photo I got from Philippe Lazoore, one of the zombies. The right photo above he comes out of the door...


The places laying very close to each other. Zooming in this map makes it unfortuntly look not sharper or better. But it is to give youan  impression of it.

A, B,C and D are big houses where they could have filmed. I mean the shot below...but it's also possible in another village, a studio or perhaps Palhers de Bramonas. I haven't been in the houses. I don't wan to trespass and so i don't know where the zombies break through the wooden floors... Below fake or real? Is it in la Perigouse or Elsewhere? This farm seems to have a kind of flexible roof covering. It looks like a large piece of clothe put over the wooden frame. In this town are many houses roofless. You can see it on the map above. Perhaps they flutter together a roof.. It's not the first time they do large fake-stone projects, like the entrance gate to the wasteland they have made it. They also made many well and statues to decorate it very well.

For me this  arcade looks like concrete or fake                                                                                                                                                                             


Episode Zombies

About Lost City (61) I have doubts, It's filmed in a kind of studio ruine or Palhers de Bramonas. Below on this site picture compilations of the episodes.

The way to Balric (Gansari's zombies episode 57)


Gansari and his 'children' are heading to Balric right after Tell. In Balric Zanthe's sister is hiding for Gansari and tries to reach her brother. Gansari is in love with the girl. The love does not come from both sides... She desperatly want to get her brother back/ When she meets Tell, they both get involved. And there is hardly time to escape now the zombies just have arrived.


 Northwest of la Perigouse

                       2017   The door are replaced by glass, the fence of iron. In my opinion It's done pretty well. It still looks nice, I've seen worse ;)  1988                                   


Notice the element on foot of the stairs...I never noticed, only when I made this stills. The girls stand on the map at number 3

The girl aimed her bow at Tell. When Tell comes from another side than she expected, she beggs not to kill her and tells him her story and about the threat in this village.


I doubt these two buildings are still there. I haven't seen this wooden carriers attached to houses.  The place below must have been on the stairs, around the corner right (photo above and below the wood construction carriers). Tell walks from nr. 7 to 3


           Bounty twins episode 55 house nr 14                                          Gansari's Zombies episode 57 from nr. 9 top 14



2017 behind Tell you see the corner of the left house (house 12)                 1988                                              2017   (Looking  from nr 13 to 15)                 



                                       1988 The impressive arcade porch, still beautiful!                                2017 looking from nr. 6, 4 to 3. The bow on the left is pointed as nr. 5     



Left of the house with the 'bacony stairs' house (the girl stood in front of with the bow)  is this little house the zombie comes walks out. It's a little hotel now used in Crossbow here.

The zombies walk on the balcony stairs of the house you see below. It's in opposite of the beautiful arcade porch.

                                                                                                  Number 4 on the map                      This building is at the right of Tell, behind the man with the barrel.

2017 same house right in the back (both pictures above) behind the electricity pole.


Almost the same but later a new modern house is built in the back. The right house has lost half of it's roof.

Same picture again to point the first small house. Picture left below is made in 2017 and the scene is shot on the left part of this photo. In front of the smallest house in the row. Looking very old with It's original roof (just right of the biggest tree, 8 on the map).



The centre of the old town of Perigouse

                            1988                                                           2017 the house left of Tell, not visible next to Tell, but the wall is


The same photo to compare; here the house at the right side. In Crossbow It had already a huge crack


2017 Amazing to discover small indication of modern times (the guesthouse on the left sure will have internet for instance and the range of the mobile phone will be fine, further on also beautiful modern houses and behind me, the photographer, some cars) but this feels amazing. Oke much is damaged but It looks authentique old to me.

The girl is hunted down through the whole town.

The attack of the zombies, they are everywhere, they even come through the floor and demolish the wooden doors!



There seems no escape


Until she finally reaches her brother. 



This Zombies interieur could be in recorded in La Perigouse, like the exterior is but also Palhers de Bramonas or elsewhere in Lozere. We don't know.


While scrolling through my la Perigouse folder  I found a hidden overgrown shed behind the cross I photgraphed. I enlarged the photo. It can't be the door (photo above right) because the roof is just above the porch like you see behind Gansari. But it can be on the other side. Some houses do have a kind of twisted roof that is making a turn to the site.


While looking at the hay shed or perhaps ruined farm in front of the door...It's interesting...take a look at the photo below. Is this the ruin of the place in crossbow they put a large piece of cloth over the beams of the roof? The same place as in the spider, Bounty twins and Zombies. We know zombies and Bounty twins (partly) is recorded in la Perigouse. The amazon for the largest part in Palhers de Bramonas. Not very far of it.


Right below: the roof of this house seems to be made for the series perhaps it was a partly ruined house?



The Cemetery of the Zombies (unknown location in Lozere, to me It seems around La Perigouse, It can be around nr. 9)


Finally Zanté finds rest again and the girl peace.



Studio shots or perhaps an old house in Perigouse?

To Compare:

 (also same episodes combined on a different location, perhaps a shed in Perigouse or a built studio).

Parts of the Amazon, episode 69, is also shot on this spot!

                    Zombies   The same place/stairs below (middle and left) but one of them has a fake background.                           Bounty twins              


       Above most of the photos from Bounty Twins and below Zombies.

The corridor the zombies are walking is also in the Amazon 69

              Zombies                                           Bounty Twins so this is changed and (partly) fake.                                                                     



The wasteland in Bounty Twins (a mix of Causse Sauverterre and La Perigouse in Lozere)











The Bounty twins are coming. Tell takes cover in a blanket behind a rock and observe them.


The twins ride on and the dust clouds disappears. Tell noticed he is followed by a man. Tell walks around the rock, then suddenly appears from the other side and sees the man stand by his things and look around where Tell is gone to. Tell first thinks he is a thief. "Found what your looking for?"

The brothers are coming



Doolan is the name: hunter, tracker, Guide! You're going into the wasteland?" Tell: "Across"

Doolan: Not many people try that. Tell: "Is there anything that would stop them?" Doolan: sand and sun

Tell: For what brings you here? Doollan is silent.

Tell: What is the best way? Straight through or around? I will pay you of course

alright: follow me

Doolan is on the outlook. Tell: "What's the matter Doolan? Like you have said yourself there is nobody around here for miles around. Dolan: It's all right. Tell sees the man worrying and repeat: it's alright?! Tell realize the man is worried but he won't share it with Tell. Tell: "What do you hunt down, Doolan? You don't have a weapon, not horse..." I'm running a horse. Yeah I can't keep up with you.


They brother saw their fire and rides straith to Dooland and Tell. Doolan is gone and Tell is a bit overwhelmed and runs as fast as he could. Then the brother throw a boomerang to Tell and hit him. Doolan is hiding behind a rock and watch the brother take Tell away and talks to himself: now who is the clever one. Where is the one who? the one who is tracking us. who is he? don't tell lies! I'm Alana high priestess of the noble...of the wasteland  of the bounty twins which blood is mixed with the blood of wolves and the patched ground. this is our land, kingdom. I'm William Tell messenger of the king of.... Alana: "Capriconicus?"  Tell: "Ah you knew..." Alana asking him: "why are you here?" "I run into your friend...friends...they invited me

Tell: "What are you doing here?" "Having fun...someday I'm a princess, priestess and other day just a servant." Tell tries to force the lock, but then she interrups: "what are you doing? you can't do that then the bounty twins get you. They beat you up and selling you as a slave!" "Why haven't they sold you?" Then she ran away.









When you need to make some still you see things you never have seen before....only visable in a still.. hardly visible. A jogger in the back, they quickly change camera viewpoint.






While singing she realizes perhaps she is a bit kept like a slave too. Then her father visits her, his sudden appearance let her scream which attracks the bounty twins at once. She looked him deep in the eyes and asked him quick to hide. They brother come in and knew there has been someone and wants Alana to speak up.

Alana ignore carefully. The brothers talk in turn: "Nobody may touch you, nobody may come close to you, who was it?!" Alana tries to calm down the twins: No one..nobody...You're in trouble Alana! When Doolan showed up again, then the twins appear and get him. Alana is in a panic and shouted to stop it and leave the man. Why alana he is the one who is been tracking us. Alana: He is my father! The twins are shocked and a big silanet takes over the place. Then he is locked up with William. Dollan to Tell: : My own daugther, can you believe it? My own flash of blood. You should have told me Dolan then I would have done anything. Murderous schorem, bandits! My precsious Alana kidnapped. Tell: Dolan

what do you mean by that? she is never kidnapped she had run off from you! She is never been so happy as she is now, altough she is scared, Scared and happy. Dolan has to laugh loud and his face is suddenly getting earnest: "Nonsens, they could have been spelled her?" Tell: "Spelled?"

then Alana appeared to the twins: Alana, why are you dressed like that. I come to be slaugthered. they brothers look very suprised to each other you are going to kill me I know it. You are greasier than that studied old man! Then the brothers talk in turn: "You lied to us Alana. When we find you, you said to us your were an orphan. We looked after you, we protected you, Now what have you done?" "Leave me alone!" Twins shouted to her: "Now you have caused us nothing but trouble with you stupid girly fantasies." Alanan felt hurt and upset too and shouted back: "What about you? You stupid two headed monster!" Immediately she regrets her words. Then they comes and hugg each other carefully. For a moment It seems that the peace has returned.


Then a moment later outside their house they ask her to go. Alana responds: "You didn't give me a change, I said I was sorry." The brothers are confused, they saw Alana as their own daugther and they felt misleaded but they still do love her. Alana doesn't seem to be fond to go away with dad. When she is going to take a story from the confused brothers Tell feels the tense and said "Alana that's enough." Then the brother said a last thing to Tell: "Your weapons are that way under the dead tree, you've got until noon."

While Tell, Alana and Dollan are out of sight they're musing to each other: "We should have sold her, we should have killed her." Then the brother both get very emotional and realize they missing her very much. "Ahh no...we should have kept her. We never find another Alana. But still...we not really going to wait until noon? Do we?" Then they go back immediately and try to find her.


Tell get his weapon at the dead tree. Do you make it Doolan? You know the hill? Doolan: "Don't worry about me... I'm not going.

Tell and Doolan makes a plan to meet up later and then giving Alana to Dolan. So they split up. Alana is a upset and confused, she shouts she is not going

Doolan Alana get on the horse! Alana about the twins: They don't hurt me Doolan who realizes asking it friendly again would make no sense to Alana. Alana if you don't get on the horse I will break your neck." And he drags her to William and put her in front of him on the horse

Doolan reassured to Tell and Alana: "We have a couple of hours. Tell: "I don't think so."

just in front of the hills they should meet, Dolan gets caught by the twins. Twins: "Doolan, what a nice guy you are" And they tie him up. "We gonna scrap you till the bone." They throw him behind the horsecar. Alana and Tell just arrived ...

Alana jumped off Tell's horse and runs hard to her father behind the wagon. Tell shoots the robe loose, Dolan is hurt badly but seems to be still alive. They took care of him, but then the wagon turns and the twins are coming backcomes heading their way.




Tell is alone and in disadvantage. The twins are armed with a double axe and heading his way.




During the fight Tell graps a sword from the wagon and hit them. Coincidently he hit the twins loose. One seems to die at once and the other is calling for loudly for Alana. Alana comes at once, altough the twins wounded her dad badly. She takes his hand. An open end.


The photo is copyright by the photographer of Crossbow. Behind the Bounty twins the same environment but then a lot sharper and less dusty the you see right above, in opposite.



Bounty Twins with Gabrielle Anwar As Alana



Crossbow Season 3

Unknown interior used in at least 5 episodes

In the season three of Crossbow, an interior was used in at least five episodes. Each time, this place was decorated differently to make it look unrecognizable. And sometimes it required a lot of work, like building a fake roof.

Episode 55: The Bounty Twins

In this episode, William is captured by a Siamese twin and retained as a prisoner in the unknown place. It is supposed to be in a hamlet called "La Périgouse", where the "Gansari's Zombies" episode also took place .The twin have taken care for a girl 'Alana' and protected her and she cared for them. Her father is looking for her, but they won't let them be taken away.

Episode 57: The Gansari's Zombies

In this episode, William saves a woman from a certain death, as she is surrounded by zombies controlled by an evil necromancer. Her home is the unknown place, which is supposed to be in "La Périgouse" like in the episode 55.

Now we can see more details. The place is so ruined that the producers had to build a fake roof with sheets. There's also a corridor with arch pillars that we'll better see in the next episodes. And the prison is still there.

On the third picture below, there's a wooden door which is the entrance of a rounded cellar typical of the Causses. We will see this cellar in the "Amazons" and "The lost city". On the fourth picture, we can see that the place is not isolated, that it is probably in a hamlet or a village. On the fifth picture, we've got a better side view of the corridor. And on the last picture, we can see how ruined is this place.

Episode 61: The lost city  

In this episode, William becomes friend with two people who live likes the ancient romans, in the unknown place that is now supposed to be located in the hamlet called "Les Palhers de Bramonas" (not far from La périgouse).

We can now see the corridor from the inside, with the arch pillars. The place is so decorated with branches and leaves that it's almost unrecognizable. On the fourth picture, we can see the rounded cellar with a little window. On the fifth picture we can distinguish an archway or a bridge. And there's a room with a chimney that we will also see in the Amazons.

Episode 68: The Amazons

William rescues an amazone but is captured by the others and retained as a prisoner in the unknown place. This place is also supposed to be located in the hamlet called "Les Palhers de Bramonas", like in the episode 61.

This time, we've got a better view from inside the corridor and its arch pillars. And the rounded cellar is almost entirely seen, with a little chimney on its left. But we don't see that much of the main room, except that there is another big chimney, fake or not. There's the same wooden structure and the same fake roof as in the other episodes.

Episode 69: The head hunters

It's hard to believe, but the head hunter's headquarter is also in the unknown place. But this time, no indication about its location which is supposed to be somewhere around the castle named "château de La Caze" in the gorges du Tarn.

Not that hard though, with the same Guatemalan stone head and the same vegetation as in the lost city. And of course, the corridor and its arch pillars.

Below: Same place as in the the Bounty Twins, so at least four episodes here (Amazon, Lost city, The Zombies and the Bounty Twins).


Left: Bounty Twins 55 and right 61 Lost City

The same corridor was in episode: Lost city, The Amazon and Zombies. I believe this could be filmed from the right side of the corridor. For the corridor shots see the screenshots below.

Left: The Amazon. Right: Lost City


Zombies                                                  Lost City

Same studio as in episode: Magician, The Amazon, part of Bounty Twins interior.

     Unknow interior place, perhaps arcade porche in Palhers de Bramonas? 




Extra fotos of Perigouse village, an impression of the old town.   

I believe this could be part of the cemetry in Zombies, without the paved road, camerapoint left and the view over the wall and hills right. Not sure,  










    There's a school to learn how to ride horses :

The facebook page :

The little hotel used in Crossbow :

There's an association children that were removed from their family because mistreatment or other :

There's a humanitarian association called NISADA :,6.11309,3.39117,44.40042/Z15/


La Périgouse : It's a locality of the Sainte Enimie town dedicated to the horses.  There are farms for horses like this one (above)

A Compilation of Headhunters (Chateau la Caze and the unknown interior) Perhaps a studio.
