History commissions Forged in Britain short films

Produced by Barcroft Media, five short films have been commissioned to sit alongside the new series of History's popular US series, Forged in Fire.

The short documentaries will be broadcast on both the History channel and on Barcroft TV.

Each of the shorts will introduce audiences to a different craftsperson, who demonstrates how they create a new blade and shares their knowledge about the history of the item they have made.
