UK pubcaster Channel 4 has commissioned Farmhouse Fit for a Prince from Twofour Group’s Cardiff-based factual producer Boomerang.
The two-part program, filmed over three years, offers a behind-the-scenes look at the building conservation charity the Landmark Trust as it tackles the renovation of a medieval home in the Black Mountains in Wales. The house, built around 500 years ago, is one of the finest medieval houses in Wales and was the most important ‘at risk’ inhabited building in the country.
Farmhouse Fit for a Prince (w/t) will follow the transformation of the house from a collapsing near-ruin into a fully restored space for everyone to rent.
Dr. Anna Keay, historian and director of the Landmark Trust, will be joined by John Evetts, head of furnishing, as they coordinate the restoration and experience all of the architectural triumphs and challenges that come from undertaking a renovation of this scale.
Farmhouse Fit for a Prince was commissioned by Channel 4′s features department.
The house previously appeared, unrestored, on the C4 series, Restoring Britain’s Landmarks. The completion of its restoration was marked by a visit from HRH the Prince of Wales on July 5, 2018.
