‘Gareth Malone Goes to Glyndebourne’wins the 2011 International Emmy Award for Best Arts Programme. Congratulations go to Twenty Twenty Television, the BBC, Gareth Malone and, of course, all the wonderful cast and musicians who took part in Knight Crew , Glyndebourne’s largest outreach project yet, which culminated in three performances from 4 – 6 March 2010. Gareth’s journey, from auditioning the young chorus through to the final performances at Glyndebourne, was filmed by the BBC as a three-part documentary, which was first broadcast on BBC2 in June 2010.
