Underneath the Noise

We live in a world where success is the only measure of success.

UK government funding for sport is based on medal prospects. Basketball, played by 218,000 14-16 year olds every week in London alone, was judged to have little chance of future medals and its funding was slashed. Basketball can give hope and focus to those who might otherwise have neither - but its future hangs in the balance.

Starring players from North & East London and Featuring poet James Massiah, Underneath the Noise celebrates Britain’s raw talent and gives a voice to young ball players.

Starring: Joel Henry (The Royal Guard), Chinedu Bowens & Will Ohuaregbe, Appollo Gayle, Steve Scantlebury, Serry Fieldhouse, Radoslav Varashilov, Anthony Oshisanya, Drai Nelson, Lewis Hardcastle
