The Marches



The Marches was a collaboration between Rural Media, BBC Radio 4/Radio Drama and the communities of Ewyas Harold and Kington in Herefordshire to create 2 radio dramas with films to accompany them on the 'red button' - developed with community participation.

“The BBC were extremely interested and the idea then grew to encompass films of the plays as well, so we now have a multi-faceted production that really is quite unique. The stories and sounds of Herefordshire and these two beautiful border communities will be heard and seen by millions of people across the globe. It’s very exciting.”

John Humphrys, BBC Radio 4 Today Presenter

Each community created two original 45 minute radio plays and two accompanying films capturing the sounds and images of contemporary rural life, together with the voices, lives, stories and histories of this rural border region between England and Wales.

Rural Media worked with each community alongside BBC Radio drama producer/director Sasha Yevtushenko and award-winning writer Sebastian Baczkiewicz
