Conductor and musician Charles Hazlewood plans to put clog dancing firmly back on the map in this BBC FOUR documentary, with the help of expert clog dancers Laura Connolly, Brenda Walker, sword dancers The Kingsmen and 140 newly trained men and women from across North East England, when one sunny Saturday, in a busy square in central Newcastle, they ambush the public by staging a four-minute mass flash mob clog dance (from 1:57 to 6:08).
