Vikings fans will be in for a surprise when they tune into the BBC Four’s Viking programme on Wednesday.
The programme will be filmed on a series of specially-set sets, each of which will include a different set of Vikings.
The project will also feature the first Vikings film ever to be shot in Britain.
It will be shot by an international team of filmmakers including Lorde, Michael Caine, Ben Elton and Richard Armitage.
It also features the first footage from a documentary series of the Vikings ever to feature an international cast.
Viking will be the BBC’s first foray into documentary since the series Viking was first broadcast in 2009.
Vikings is a documentary made by a team of six British-born filmmakers, led by director and Viking producer Rob Schmitz.
They have worked with the BBC to film the series in Bristol, Scotland, and will be bringing the programme to a wider audience in the US and Europe later this year.
The Vikings will be joined on the project by the Viking Channel, a documentary website which has produced four Vikings films and a series called Vikings in the UK.
The channel will feature a live Viking forum at a Bristol venue in June.
Vikings will feature interviews with the Vikings and the Viking community, as well as archival footage of the site.
It has a special connection to the Bristol Vikings community, with more than 100 people from all over the world having signed up to help create a documentary on the Vikings, including Lord Elton, Caine and Richard.
Rob Schmetz said Vikings would be about the community and what they do in the trenches.
“We want to give them an understanding of what it means to be a Viking,” he said.
“This is not a documentary of a family.
It’s a documentary that follows the lives of these brave warriors as they take part in a war against an alien enemy.”
Vikings will focus on the lives and experiences of the warriors, and their relationships with the people who lived alongside them.
They will also explore what it was like to live in the Viking age and to watch their men march into battle, as the Vikings had in their heyday.
The team behind Vikings said it was a project which would be different to other documentaries they had previously produced.
“It’s a little bit of a departure for us,” said Rob Schmeterz.
“Our previous projects have been about the history of a country, and this is different.
We’ve been working on Vikings for 15 years and we haven’t done anything like this before.”
We’re going to have a whole different perspective on this because we’re not just talking about the past, but about the future.
“If you walk into the village, you’ll see the same faces, and you’ll also be told stories about the same people who have lived here for hundreds of years.” “
There are people who are just as much a part of the community as the people of Bristol,” he added.
“If you walk into the village, you’ll see the same faces, and you’ll also be told stories about the same people who have lived here for hundreds of years.”
Rob has worked on Vikings and Vikings in Britain, and said it would be an honour to film a documentary from a Vikings-based perspective.
“I can’t wait to be able to bring the Vikings to life,” he told BBC Sport.
“The Vikings have always been very much part of my life.
They’ve been an integral part of every film I’ve ever made.”
I’m excited to be working with the Bristol Viking community to create a Vikings documentary, and I can’t thank them enough for their support.
“Vikings is going to be the first documentary I’ve worked on where the Vikings were an integral aspect of the story, and that’s going to go down very well with Bristol.”
The Vikings film project has a lot of ambition, with Rob and Rob’s team keen to reach out to people who might be interested in the project.
“People have always loved the Vikings,” Rob said.
The Bristol Vikings are part of a network of Viking groups, which is a testament to the community’s interest in the Vikings.
“When we started the Vikings project, I was just looking for an opportunity to tell a story about a Viking community that’s a bit of an unusual one, and a little unusual for us in terms of how many people live here,” Rob added.
Rob said he was confident of the project’s success.
“From what I’ve heard, the Viking communities have a very high standard of community and that they’re very happy to share their story with the public,” he continued.
“That’s what I want Vikings to be.
It’ll be interesting to see what the reaction is, but we’re aiming for something very, very special.”
Viking fans will have to wait until June for the programme’s first film to be shown in Britain and the US, as there will be no Vikings-themed films made there until at least 2019.
The first Vikings movie to be made in the country will be released in 2020,
