On Friday 3rd March 2017, BBC’s The One Show were at St Benedicks Catholic School creating some high art based on the work of Arthur Mole, a British-born, American commercial photographer who became famous for a series of "living photographs" made during World War I, in which tens of thousands of soldiers were arranged to form massive compositions that could only be seen from an 80ft viewing tower.

To celebrate his work, the Essex based school wanted to create an image of Arthur Mole using 650 pupils. Using a template it took almost a whole day to mark out the image on the ground ready for the pupils to take position.

Needing to be over 50 feet high to take the shot, The One Show enlisted the help of a Skyjack 9250 scissor lift from Facelift.
