The Choir: Sing While You Work; Fresh Meat – TV review

With his new beard, Gareth Malone wins everyone over – even the grumpy basses

Here's something to maybe fill the baking void: singing. Not The X Factor, but middle-class talent television, for the Guardian reader: The Choir: Sing While You Work (BBC2) with Gareth Malone. Corporate glee.

Actually It's a shame the Guardian isn't in it (and you have to be to win it, innit). There is a choir here – the Guardian Angels, they call themselves; you can here them practising on a Wednesday lunchtime. What would they do in this? A version of The Snowman theme, rewritten to be about Edward Snowden? We're Spying in the Air … Or some kind of Nwa/Nsa gangsta rap, Straight Outta Kings Place. Or something better.

Anyway, the Guardian's not in it, P&O is. Surely they should do My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion. Or anything by Roxy Music. I'm thinking of the singer.
