Pioneer Productions has been commissioned by Channel 4 and Passion Distribution to make new four part series, Secrets of the Royal Gardens for More4.

Narrated by Hugh Bonneville, the series, with the help of historians, garden designers, wildlife experts and royal gardeners, reveals the secrets of Britain’s most spectacular Royal Gardens and Parks including Buckingham Palace’s 39-acre garden, the vast Balmoral estate in the Scottish Highlands and Hampton Court Palace.

The series is Executive Produced by Peter Collins for Pioneer Productions, with Stuart Strickson as series producer. It is commissioned for More4 by Shaminder Nahal and Naomi Rose, and for Passion Distribution by Emmanuelle Namiech and Nick Tanner. Passion will also distribute, with the series already being pre-sold to SBS Australia.

Executive Producer, Peter Collins said: “The Royal Parks and Gardens are unique in that they are full extraordinary wildlife, but also have rich, fascinating histories. Every flower and tree has a story to tell.”

Nick Tanner, Director of Sales and Co-Productions at Passion Distribution, said: “The Royal gardens are as important to royal life as the grand buildings they often encompass. The Secrets of Royal Gardens is a beautiful and insightful journey through some of the best known, but perhaps least understood royal landscapes. We’re thrilled to be working with Pioneer Productions and More4.”
