The Choir, Military Wives Episode 3 of 3

Choirmaster Gareth Malone has formed a new choir of military wives at RMB Chivenor in north Devon while their husbands deploy to Afghanistan for a six-month tour of duty.

Four months after their husbands' departure, the wives are finding it increasingly difficult to cope. Gareth sets them the biggest challenge of their lives: to perform at the Royal Albert Hall on Remembrance Sunday in just a few weeks' time. The women contribute letters and lyrics to a song that is specially composed for them by the Duchess of Cambridge's favourite composer Paul Mealor.

After a six-month wait, and agonising reports of multiple injuries and fatalities on the frontline, the choir-members' husbands finally return, to joyous reunions. Now Gareth has to make sure his choir members give it their all, for the once-in-a-lifetime Royal Albert Hall performance.
