#BBCLockdownOrchestra

As part of a ten-day creative challenge, we asked the nation to dust off their instruments, warm up their vocal cords and join the newly formed BBC Lockdown Orchestra in a rendition of ‘You Got The Love’.

We were overwhelmed by the response. Nearly 1,500 members of the public uploaded their performances, dance routines and other artwork to the BBC Lockdown Orchestra. We've mixed as many of your contributions as possible into a huge virtual performance featuring hundreds of people from all over the country. It's an incredible piece, celebrating the creative contributions of people all across the UK.

Life Drawing Live!

Life Drawing Live!
Life Drawing Live! was a huge success on Tuesday night on BBC FOUR. More than 26,000 drawings were uploaded by members of the public during the two-hour live broadcast and many more shared their efforts on social media. 

The show aimed to draw the nation together and we saw people young and old from all parts of the UK pick up a pencil, pen or charcoal and give it a go. Many were trying life drawing for the first time in many years — or ever! It was truly special to see so many people being inspired.

You can still watch the full episode back on iPlayer for a few weeks, and access the dedicated Pose Cam to concentrate on drawing the fantastic models by clicking below.
