Full post production on the 60 minute documentary for BBC Four.

In this festive treat featuring the Kingdom Choir and Hampton Court Choir, Lucy Worsley reveals that there’s much more to our best-loved carols than meets the eye. She reveals how their stories add up to a special kind of history of Christmas itself. In the ancient past, the wassail, a pagan fertility ritual, gave us door-to-door carol singing. Wassailing was also an integral part of an older midwinter festival that was adopted by Christianity when it came to Britain, and was rebranded as ‘Christmas’.

Stef Henley completed the online edit on Avid Symphony.

The programme was graded with Digital Visions Nucoda by Sonny Sheridan.

Tristan Powell mixed the audio using Pro Tools 12.
