The Choir Series One DVD Box Set

ACORN MEDIA is delighted to announce the DVD release of the BBC’s hit documentary series The Choir Series One. This BAFTA award-winning series sees choirmaster Gareth Malone as a man on a mission. Believing Britain’s schools to be bursting with untapped singing talent, he takes a group of untrained school kids, and forms a choir with the aim of taking them to the World Choir Games in China.

September 2, 2009 (FPRC) --

An uplifting, moving and inspiring piece of television, The Choir Series One will be released on DVD on 7 September 2009 courtesy of Acorn Media to coincide with the broadcast of the third series on BBC2.

Northolt High School is an everyday comprehensive with an everyday mix of children that range from the somewhat motivated to the extremely disinterested. Are they likely to want to join a choir? And sing classical music? In a foreign language? These are just a handful of the challenges Gareth faces, along with naturally rebellious kids, some of whom need more inspiration than others.

As they take part in an emotional year of shocks and surprises, challenges and rewards, they will share a dream they never knew they had; discover more about life than they even knew existed; and experience what will literally be the adventure of a lifetime.

Along with the complete first series, the DVD release features The Choir Revisited, in which Gareth returns to Northolt School to see how the work they did together changed the students’ lives.
