      Press Release:

      Following the Bafta Award-winning success of The Choir, the sequel The
      Choir – Boys Don't Sing returns to BBC Two this week.

      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?
