What the papers say....

Jamie Oliver might have changed school dinners with his TV series but Gareth Malone showed that we are more, much more than we eat.

Norman Lebrecht, Evening Standard

This is a series that shows an exceptional person trying to do something worthwhile

David Chater, The Times

As profoundly a moving piece of television as has ever been made

Deborah Ross, The Independent

One of the most enthralling, informative and uplifting reality series yet made

Andrew Billen, The Times

[A] compelling sociological experiment... Oh Gareth, how much more love can we give you? None for you have it all

Daily Telegraph

This series is so uplifting, you'll want to sing 'Hallelujah!' The

Radio Times

LSO Youth Choir: it was clear that Malone's talent as a conductor was bringing out the best in the choir while also encouraging them to ever greater heights.

Music Teacher July 2006 (Magazine)

As you can imagine, agreeing to TV cameras being in school for 26 weeks was not an easy decision. However I have to say its possibly the best decision I have ever made!

Paul Craven, Headteacher of The Lancaster School in the Times Education Supplement

The Choir is sensational television because Gareth Malone is moulding young minds, forming young characters, before your very eyes. You see schools as they should be: a strong, respected headmaster, an ethos of inspiration. Above all, you see the wonderful spirit of children, the rebel who performed brilliantly at the Albert Hall, the son of immigrant parents from Vietnam who felt they had reached their journey's end, the boy with cancer who declared himself a fighter. Who would have thought a school choir would be a metaphor for an ideal society.

Sarah Sands, The Independent on Sunday
