I like the sound of this programme

TONIGHT ON BBC 2 AT 9.00 PM – Episode 1 of 3
The Hairy Bikers are in Oxford to meet head teacher Niall McWilliams and set up their most ambitious project yet – an intergenerational experiment which will pair 12 teenagers with 12 pensioners for one term in a struggling school, to see if the resulting partnerships can benefit both groups. With youngsters facing relentless pressure to succeed and rising mental health disorders, coupled with pensioners feeling isolated and forgotten by society, could a simple friendship help both marginalised generations feel valued and gain self-esteem? Set in the Oxford Academy School near the deprived Blackbird Lees estate, can these normally opposing groups find common ground?
