The story of Kibworth is The Story of England

BBC4 is to show a new Michael Wood series entitled The Story of England. It was made by MayaVision International and the company's website describes it as follows:
Michael tells the story of one community through the whole of English history. Using documents, landscape, buildings, science and archaeology, and with the help of the villagers themselves, he explores the lives of the ordinary people against the backdrop of national events across more than a thousand years.
And the exciting thing, for me at least, is the identity of that community: it is Kibworth in Leicestershire, which I have written about here myself.

The Story of England is in six parts. The first will be shown on BBC4 at 9 p.m. on 22 September and repeated on the same channel at 10 p.m. on Thursday 23 September.
