Our Dementia Choir with Vicky McClure 10 October 2022: Episode 1 on BBC One 11

It’s been four years since Vicky formed her choir of people living with dementia and proved the undeniable power of music to change the lives of those living with the condition. But as she discovers when she catches up with old members Mick and Julie and new members Kev and Leslie, nothing has really changed; there is a lack of support and help available to those being diagnosed. There are growing care issues and music therapy is not available for most people living with the condition.

To raise awareness of these issues, Vicky turns to her choir for help. Together, they decide they are going to do what they do best and sing to get their message across by recording and releasing their own single – a very special song that has been gifted to them by a local Nottingham band.

In the process, they walk in the footsteps of music legends The Beatles and make musical history when then become the first dementia choir to record at the legendary Abbey Road Studios.
