Henry Perkins documentary on BBC

In 2006 the Lisa Wilson Scholarship Fund gave a bursary to Henry Perkins a youth from Hampshire who won a place at the Bolshoi Ballet in Russia as an aspiring ballet dancer.
The BBC have been following him over the past months and have made a documentary about him which is being broadcast as the first programme in the Alan Yentob Imagine series at 10.30pm on October 23rd. This should be a great insight to this ambitious young man who really has made the Billy Elliott ‘dream’ come true.defaul2.jpg
