Shooting is underway on our new feature documentary HOLMEWOOD. The film tells the story of a small and very unusual school in England in the 1960s filled with children from all round the world where race, religion and class had no meaning. It was multi cultural before the word was invented. We've tracked a number of the boys scattered now, in far flung corners, to find out what effect that extraordinary environment had on the rest of their lives. Are there lessons we can learn in the 21st century about how we educate children? In a time of rising populism, racism and skin deep nationalism HOLMEWOOD is a powerful addition to a very contemporary debate. We're currently shooting in Vancouver, next stop up-state New York, then London, Madrid and Accra.
