Wales-based factual indie, Wildflame Productions, has been commissioned to make a feature-length documentary for Channel 5 on the Frogmore Estate which includes the royal residence of Frogmore House.

Frogmore Estate has been a favourite royal retreat for more than 300 years – a secret royal bolt-hole and most recently home to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – Harry and Meghan. Frogmore: A Royal Residence Through Time (w/t) (1 x 90 mins), will take viewers on a journey through Frogmore’s history, hearing from a variety of expert contributors who will share insider knowledge of the exclusive estate.

Connie Fisher, Head of Development, Wildflame Productions, says: “As the Frogmore Estate is only open to the public for a handful of days each year, this is an amazing chance to delve into its rich history and tell some of the incredible stories stored within these unique grounds.

“At Wildflame, we are passionate about uncovering the hidden stories that lie at the heart of our collective cultural heritage and Frogmore House provides an incredible canvas to explore the rich history and cultural significance of this iconic location. With our extensive experience in producing engaging and informative documentaries, we are delighted to bring this remarkable story to life for Channel 5’s viewers.”

The commission follows the recent four-part series for Channel 5, Wonderful Wales With Michael Ball, which saw the popular singer explore his own heritage whilst discovering the rich history, Celtic traditions and hidden treasures of Wales.

Frogmore: A Royal Residence Through Time (w/t) was commissioned by Lucy Willis, Commissioning Editor Non-Scripted, Channel 5/Paramount+. It is Exec Produced by Simon Kerfoot for Wildflame Productions.
