Around the world, 150,000 – 200,000 babies with clubfoot are born each year. Approximately 80% of these will be in low and middle income countries. The incidence of clubfoot varies around the world. Without treatment, the clubfoot deformity causes a lifetime of disability as the affected individual experiences pain and difficulty in walking. People with untreated clubfoot find it difficult to access education, employment and experience exclusion from society. We went to Chelsea hospital in London to film a child going through a program to correct their clubfoot.
Using teaching, rehearsing, recording, performance, improvisation and composition to aid the rehabilitation of prisoners and ex-prisoners. Going into prisons and holding concerts, prisoners told us music has been fundamental to their rehabilitation. They have been doing this work for fifteen years.

Over the course of a few days we captured some stunning footage and interviews inside this spectacular building.
