Episode 1 of 2

Duration: 1 hour

Two-part documentary in which Fazer from N-Dubz attempts to put seven unknown urban musicians through a crash course in classical music before performing with the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the BBC Proms.

In the first episode, Fazer goes to a hip hop night with a classical quartet to gauge how big the gap between classical and urban music really is. He sets out to recruit his young band, all of which have one thing in common - they think classical music is boring and for old posh people. As the group gets to work writing their track for the Urban Classic Prom alongside classical musicians from the orchestra, Fazer takes them to the Royal Albert Hall and the young musicians quickly realise the scale of the task at hand.
