Gareth Malone to tour UK in two-part programme Britain's Easter Story

In the first of two special programmes for Easter, choirmaster Gareth Malone and gospel choir conductor Karen Gibson travel round the UK to uncover the stories, music and traditions that have marked this most important of Christian festivals both in the past and today. 

From the stunning island of Lindisfarne to a Welsh mountain with a unique connection to Good Friday, Gareth finds out what links Easter to some of the country’s most stunning historic sites. 

Part one will air on Good Friday, 19th April BBC One at 9pm. 

The second part will air on Easter Sunday.
