Four creative youngsters were united with professionals as they created their very own pilot television show.

The students gathered at the iWise Centre at Frank Wise School in Banbury for three days last week as part of Song Unite’s new project.

The Community Interest Company offers children and young people – including those with disabilities, learning difficulties and special educational needs – plenty of creative experience. The students now have the pilot footage of their show, which include an interview with Song Unite patron Clem Cattini – the legendary drummer who has played with the likes of Lou Reed and Cliff Richard.The project was also filmed for a TV documentary with the help of director Helen Sheppard, cameraman/photographer Christopher Baines, sound engineer Steve Redfearn and iWise manager Tim Archard. Soung Unite directors Chris and Amanda Beck said: “The whole project was an incredibly uplifting experience and most importantly the students enjoyed every single minute learning and sharing creative skills and inspiring not only one another but everyone who took part.”
