Re-Launch Of Thurrock Marching Brass On BBC

| |

The BBC will air a programme about the re-launch of Thurrock Marching Brass. The band closed its door in 1989 after sixteen years but reformed in 2010, lead by Paul Morgan.

After spending some time filming the kids at rehearsals and also following them to the 2012 BYBA Nationals, the final editing of the programme relating to marching bands is complete and an air date has been released. The programme centres around the re-launching of one of the UK’s most prestigious marching bands after an absence of 21 years. It follows the reasons why the band was reformed and where the idea initially came from, and has some interviews with key personnel within the organisation who give their own account of the current and future of what has been restarted for the youngsters of Thurrock. The band was followed to the 2012 BYBA Nationals.
