Wales-based Yeti Television has announced its commission from Channel 4 for the upcoming documentary National Trust: My Historic Home.

The hour long documentary features National Trust homes and the lives of the ordinary people living in them.

Set over six months, the documentary takes a behind the scenes look at three properties and the professionals taking care of them. One of the locations featured includes Castle Ward in County Down, Northern Ireland, the estate made famous by HBO's Game of Thrones.

The castle's farmyard stood in for parts of Winterfell, including the archery range. The estate features other recognisable sites such as Robb Stark’s (played by Richard Madden) army camp and the setting for The Twins – home of the treacherous Lord Frey (David Bradley).

The battle between the Starks and Lannisters in season one, episode nine (‘Baelor’) was also filmed at Castle Ward, along with the scene in episode ten (‘Fire and Blood’) where Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) confronts three Stark men.

The documentary is narrated by Eve Myles and is produced and directed by Nia Dryhurst. Yeti's Andrew O’Connell executive produces.

Yeti was launched in 2014 and programmes for UK and International Broadcasters, specialising in daytime, specialist factual (arts and history), formats and features. Orange Smarty is handling distribution for the documentary.
