Old School with the Hairy Bik­ers BBC2, 9pm

Macclesfield Express - - TVWEEK -

At a strug­gling school in Ox­ford, Dave My­ers and Si King meet head teacher Niall McWil­liams and set up an ex­per­i­ment. As this three­parter re­veals, it will pair 12 teenagers with 12 pen­sion­ers for one term to see if the re­sult­ing part­ner­ships can ben­e­fit both groups. With young­sters fac­ing pres­sure to suc­ceed and ris­ing men­tal health dis­or­ders, cou­pled with pen­sion­ers feel­ing iso­lated and for­got­ten by so­ci­ety, the duo want to see if a sim­ple friend­ship could help both marginalised gen­er­a­tions feel val­ued and boost their self-es­teem
