Sathnam Sanghera speaks to Alpesh Chauhan

Sathnam Sanghera sees himself as firmly middle class. He speaks to a Alpesh Chauhan, a conductor with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, who feels his class is irrelevant.

Sathnam Sanghera feels he has come a long way from his working class Wolverhampton background and now regards himself as firmly middle class.
In this second programme for One to One, he meets Alpesh Chauhan, an Asian Brummie from a working class background, who has become an Assistant Conductor with the CBSO (City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra).
As someone who has broken through so many social barriers, has Alpesh's ethnic background proved to be a bigger hurdle than his social class?
Producer: Perminder Khatkar.
