Summary: Inspiring stories about school projects that make a difference.This programme explores how to teach filmmaking and media to children with different learning abilities. The pupils at Frank Wise Special Needs School worked together to make the film Sporting Heroes. The film is based on the achievements of famous sportsmen. Teachers and filmmakers united to help the children to get involved in all aspects of making a film. The children acted out famous events, such as Frankie Dettori's winning race. Experts help the pupils get to grips with editing software and encourage them to make their own decisions. Teachers and experts explain why it is so important for the children to be challenged and included in activities that they may not have had the chance to participate in before. The film was screened at the Odeon in Banbury, where the children could dress like stars for the night and watch the premiere of the film with friends and parents.
