Big Noise in a Wee Place

For a year, the children of Raploch, a council estate in Stirling, have been at the heart of an experiment. They have been taught to play classical stringed instruments in an attempt to transform their lives.

The idea comes from Venezuela where many thousands of children from poor backgrounds have benefited from free tuition and some have gone on to join world-class orchestras.

This heart-warming film follows six professional musicians charged with introducing dozens of freedom-loving kids to the discipline of making music as they create a brand new orchestra.
