The Choir: Military Wives

Gareth Malone's back with a new choir.

In the fourth series of BBC2’s The Choir, Gareth Malone forms a choir of military wives while their husbands/partners deploy for a 6 month tour of duty in Afghanistan.

While the men are away, Gareth believes music and singing will help the women through a difficult time of worry and separation; but the emotional torment of the tour is to prove unchartered waters for the inspirational choirmaster.

Gareth plans several performances for his choir with the aim to give the women ‘a voice’ to be heard as they feel they are often forgotten. They sing to the local town of Barnstaple to help them understand their often difficult lives, at the Commissioning Dinner at the Sandhurst Officer Training Academy to get the military seal of approval, to their men at their Homecoming Medals Parade when they return from war, and finally in front of the Queen and Royal family at the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall.
