The Choir

I don't know if anyone else watched this 3 parter on BBC 2 on Monday nights, but for me its been the best thing on telly this year.

The story of a choir put together with kids from a Northolt comprehensive to compete in the World Choir Games in China.

The kids started out as a bit of a shower, with attitude, but came together as a very passable Choir and the tears they shed at the end just goes to prove that teenagers have got hearts. I cried buckets.

I saw the first two episodes but missed the lastest one. Yeah, it was pretty good. I think it's repeated at something like midnight on Friday morning - I'll have to try and tape it.

Rats, it was Episode 1 all over again Sad

So how did they do in the competition, and did the Kenyan lad Enock get to make the trip in the end?

How ironic to have an African called Enock/Enoch.

They didn't get through the first round unfortunately. But they were all so touched by the experience.

Two of the older lads had to re-audition at the last minute before they left for China and one of them got the boot. So, yes, Enock did get to go, which I was pleased about but I felt sorry for the other lad.
