BBC documentary about the history of Glastonbury

By - Richard - 24th April 2012

Swift Films has recently provided editing services to a one-off BBC documentary about the history of Glastonbury as part of the BBC’s Great British Story series.

Glastonbury TorWestcountry comedian Tom Craine discovers the rich and colourful history of Glastonbury and uncovers its role in some of the most extraordinary events that Britain has ever seen. From the birth of Christianity in Europe to Henry VIII’s dissolution of the abbey and execution of the abbot, Tom journeys through 2000 years of history – from Jesus to Jay-Z – to separate fact from fiction.
