From Wales to Patagonia: A Musical Journey

Documementary following the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and harpist Catrin Finch as they prepare for a historic concert in the Welsh settlement of Patagonia.

The BBC National Orchestra of Wales is joined by world-renowned harpist Catrin Finch on an ambitious tour to inspire young musicians in the Welsh settlement of Patagonia.

They hope to crown a week of music-making with an historic performance in a converted wool warehouse - the first time a full international symphony orchestra has ever performed in the region. But it's a race against time to turn an old industrial shed into a worthy venue for a gala concert.
