The Choir-Boys Don't Sing E03.avi
A four-part television series featuring the highs and lows of ever-patient choirmaster Gareth Malone, the series follows Gareth as he tackles, in his usual head-on way, the task of teaching choral singing in Lancaster School – a large boys’-only state school in Leicester.
Gareth has dreams of involving the whole school and leading a 100-strong, all-boys’ choir out on the stage at London’s Royal Albert Hall. The problem is, at Lancaster, singing in assembly was abandoned in the Seventies, and most of the boys who attend think singing is definitely best left for the girls.
In episode one, Gareth sets about changing attitudes at the school before launching his choir. His first challenge is to put singing back into assembly, but it doesn’t happen without a struggle. There is open hostility to his project from some boys, and when he takes his singing crusade into the classroom, the reception is mixed. He does, however, unearth some real talent. Fourteen-year-old Imran Siddique has the voice of an angel, but bags of attitude to match. Can Gareth keep his spirited protégé on track, and has he done enough to persuade the school that boys do sing?
