A St Ives film production company will see one of its documentaries air on television this Friday (March 11).
Cambridge Filmworks has created a 30 minute special about ice skating in the Fens, also telling the story of the origins of the landscape and how the sport came about.
Barrie White, editor at the company, said: “It was a pleasure to put this film together, going through interviews and old archive, piecing together this uniquely Fenland story.”
The project was commissioned by Fen Skating Association, with support from the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Adam Giles, co-owner of Cambridge Filmworks, said: “The project started out as a local film to help promote Fen skating heritage within local schools and community groups and has ended becoming a programme on national TV, such has been the interest.”
