Gareth Malone presents Our School by the Tower for BBC Two

In this two-part series, Gareth Malone work with Kensington Aldridge Academy, the school next to Grenfell tower after they had to relocate following the fire that claimed 72 lives. Five of the victims were students of the school.

Gareth works with the already existing choir as they prepare for a concert to mark the disaster and the lost lives of the pupils. 

“We were so careful to get this right and to just listen to them. If they didn’t want to film or they didn’t want to sing then no one was making them. It wasn’t about that. It was about giving them the opportunity to express themselves.”
