Jamie's Dream School: now there's a teaching faculty

Posted on February 8, 2011 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

Well, Jamie Oliver may have been banned from filming in any schools in LA, but that's not something that's happening to him over here. He's about – as in March time – going to launch a new Channel 4 series called Jamie's Dream School, in which he gets a bunch of famous people to teach subjects to kids who are a bit bored or something. 

Among the teachers are Daley Thompson, Simon Callow, Ellen MacArthur, David Starkey, Alastair Campbell, Robert Winston, Alvin Hall, Tinchy Stryder, Dominic West, Mary Beard, Jazzie B, Rankin, Nora Sands, Cherie Blair, Rolf Harris, Andrew Motion and David Hempleman-Adams. That actually sounds quite fun.

Anyway, here's the trailer, with music composed especially by Orbital.

Allowable comments

You can leave just about any kind of comment you like. You can argue, suggest I am (or anyone else is) wrong, leaving general messages of love – anything. However, you absolutely can't leave messages that attack other commenters (or me), are simple variations of "your review sucks" or that are misogynistic, racist, homophobic, etc: your comment will either be edited or deleted and you'll be barred from leaving any further comments. We want to keep it civil here.


You can hide a spoiler by putting <spoiler> before it and </spoiler> after it. Hover over a spoiler to reveal it!
