Ben Hur show in Bath fulfils dream of Archers star Margot Boyd

The curtain is about to go up in Bath on a large community production of Ben Hur, involving local people from the ages of 8-80.

The spectacular has been made possible by a bequest from Archers actress Margot Boyd, who died in May 2009 aged 94.

It is the result of a year-long collaboration between a team of theatre professionals and 180 members of the public.

The BBC's Alison Harper reports.
