HRH The Prince of Wales to explore Hubert Parry's life and work

HRH The Prince of Wales will be exploring his love of classical music in a documentary for BBC Four.

The composer of Jerusalem, Hubert Parry, whose influence and significance far outweighs his reputation, is a particular favourite of Prince Charles. The Prince will be investigating Parry's life and legacy in a film he is making with producer John Bridcut during the summer months.

The documentary has been commissioned by Richard Klein, Controller, BBC Four and Jan Younghusband, Commissioning Editor, Music & Events, from Bridcut's production company, Crux Productions and Peter Dale's production company Rare Day. The executive producer for the BBC is Adam Barker.

Richard Klein, Controller, BBC Four says: "I am delighted that The Prince of Wales has decided to share his enthusiasm by telling the full story of this extraordinary and too often overlooked British composer. This film will seek to go some way to try and open up that legacy."

The programme will be shown next year on BBC Four.
