Drone films Shakespeare's home town Stratford-upon-Avon

As Stratford-upon-Avon prepares to welcome thousands of tourists for the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, a drone has captured a bird's eye-view of the town.

Stratford will be hosting television crews from around the world for the event, with David Tennant due to host a live broadcast from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.

The former Doctor Who star will be joined by Dame Judi Dench and Sir Ian McKellen.

Shakespeare Live! will be broadcast on BBC Two from 20:30 BST on 23 April.
