Yeti Television has been commissioned by Channel 4 to make documentary National Trust: My Historic Home (1×60’) which will air on 23rd February.

Opening the door to some of the National Trust’s most remarkable homes, the 60-minute documentary explores the stories of the ordinary people living in these homes.

More than 500 properties in the UK are in the safekeeping of the National Trust, and over 50,000 people work to look after them, with a lucky few able to call them home. Set over 6 months, the documentary takes a behind the scenes look at three properties and the professionals taking care of them. From ghosts, fruit flies and floods through to jaw-dropping vistas and priceless portraits, the documentary follows the trials and tribulations of the unique job, uncovering the responsibilities of taking care of millions of pounds worth of property and antiques.

The documentary, which is narrated by Eve Myles, was commissioned for Channel 4 by Clemency Green, Senior Commissioning Editor, Daytime & Features and Jo Street, Head of Daytime & Features. The producer/director is Nia Dryhurst and the executive producer for Yeti is Andrew O’Connell.

Sian Price, Creative Director at Yeti says “Yeti love nothing more than taking people into spaces you don’t often get to see. We’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with the National Trust and of course the wonderful custodians of some of their stunning properties, to take a privileged peak at what it takes to live in and care for a historic property”.

Orange Smarty is handling distribution for the documentary.
