Did anyone watch this this evening on BBC? Well worth finding on iPlayer. It was incredibly moving.

Shows Vicky catching up with some of the choir during lockdown. Clips shown from previous programme in 2018. Heartbreaking to see the deterioration in some of the choir since then.

This episode culminates in a special Christmas performance by 51 yr old Mick who wants to sing on a stage one last time while he is still able. His dementia has accelerated during lockdown.

Thanks Granny I didn't know this was on. I'll find it on the iplayer. I thought the first one was uplifting and also sad. I would be interested to see how they are all getting on.

Yes, I saw it.
Keep a box of tissues handy.

Vicky is wonderful, isn't she!

I agree Callistemon she comes across as a lovely person. To be honest I wasn’t sure who she was and didn’t realise she was an actress till I googled.

I will watch it, on my own, with tissues, thank you.

Line of Duty - she's a good detective as well!

Yes it was a very uplifting programme but so sad that one so young should be affected.
My mum has total dementia and doesn't know me at all but she is 100!
