Series 1 Episode 1
First Broadcast: 10PM Wed 24 July 2013

James Rhodes is passionate about taking his music out of the confines of the concert hall and into places it rarely reaches.

Convinced that music can change lives for the better, classical pianist James takes a Steinway grand piano inside one of Britain's largest psychiatric hospitals.

In 2006, James himself was sectioned, and this film follows him as he returns to a psychiatric unit for the first time.

With exclusive and unprecedented access, James meets four patients, each with their own tale to tell, and shares his own life story.

At the heart of this inspirational, moving and sometimes funny film, James performs individual pieces specially chosen for patients Jason, Kelly, Krissy and Nicky; pieces he hopes will resonate with them.

And although this film is primarily about performing to those least likely to experience classical piano, it's also about James making good with his own life.

Broadcast as part of a season of programmes, Mad4Music, offering a unique perspective on the power of classical music in people's lives.
