Green Bay starts to attack Castles

11th April 2014

Shooting has started on Green Bay's next international series, THE CASTLE BUILDERS.

Across Europe, from Carcassonne to Caerphilly, from the Rhine to the Thames, masterpieces in stone draw visitors by the million.

But how were these medieval superstructures built? How were machines and men organised to create such colossal fortifications?

CASTLE BUILDERS is the story of the blood, sweat and vision behind the architecture; of courts and rulers, power struggles, innovation and intrigue.

The three-part series is being made for S4C, UKTV and with the backing of Dutch distributors Off the Fence and the Welsh Government.

The series is being produced and directed by John Geraint who began shooting in the ‘untake-able' fortified city of Carcassonne in the southern French region of Languedoc-Rousillon.
