A story by Mike Laycock in The Press.
York Theatre Royal is to star in a BBC documentary about its £4.1 million redevelopment and huge community production, In Fog and Falling Snow.
The programme, narrated by Sir Derek Jacobi, is being shown next month as part of the BBC’s On Stage series, which celebrates Britain’s theatre talent, from world-class actors to cutting-edge regional theatre.
For several months, cameras were granted privileged access to all areas of the theatre site as the massive project – pictured here – has been taking place.
They recorded the discovery of the remains of St Leonard’s Hospital under the site, and staff from the theatre, construction company William Birch & Sons Ltd and York Archaeological Trust were interviewed.
