360 Productions films a documentary on the Crusades in Israel for BBC2


Biblical Productions provided production services to 360 Productions from London for a three-part documentary series about the Crusades for BBC2.

The prestigious series is based on the book “The Crusades” by Dr. Thomas Asbridge, which has been lauded as ‘brilliant, authoritative and accessible’. The series was shot in Israel, Italy, France, Jordan and Egypt and series producer Chris Wilson came for an extensive recce in August before shooting commenced in September.

Biblical Productions provided comprehensive production services (permits, crew, gear, recce, consultations) and accompanied the crew on the two-week shoot. Although this was Thomas’ first time as a TV presenter, we were always in awe of his natural talent and professionalism. We wish the series the best of luck and much success when it airs in early 2012.
