The Marches

The Marches was a collaboration between Rural Media, BBC Radio 4/Radio Drama and the communities of Ewyas Harold and Kington to create a highly innovative combination of radio, film and web content.

Each community created two original 43-minute radio plays and two accompanying films, for BBC Radio 4, BBC.co.uk and the Red Button. The plays and films capture 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.

John Humphreys directed the Kington film, lovingly crafting a beautiful visual exploration of the market town, its locations, places and events in the play. 

The plays can be found on the BBC Radio 4 website here .
