Written and produced by Raymond Short.

In June this year the Lincoln Cycle of Mystery Plays - last seen in Lincolnshire 400 years ago - was performed in Grantham at the West Front of St. Wulfram's Church. The cast of more than 100 were all amateurs.
This documentary film takes a look at why the plays were put on, what some of the actors got from them, the complex operation of producing and mounting the plays, and of course, the plays themselves.
The BBC acknowledges the co-operation of the production staff, the cast, and the Kesteven Education Committee throughout the production of this programme.
