Big Shows

Got the winter blues? Never fear – there's a load of cracking comedy and TV gems in the bag for Red Nose Day 2007 to keep you entertained until the spring.

Here are some of the highlights:

Comic Relief: The Big One, Friday 16 March, 7pm - late, BBC One and BBC Two

For a night of cracking comedy and the biggest celebrities strutting their stuff, tune in to the Red Nose Day Night of TV.

Top TV talents Jonathan Ross, Lenny Henry, Davina McCall, Graham Norton, Russell Brand, Fearne Cotton, Kate Thornton, Paul O'Grady and Chris Evans will be on hand to guide you through this TV extravaganza.

Some of the TV treats to look forward to on the night include the last ever Vicar Of Dibley special, exclusive Catherine Tate sketches, a Red Nose Day version of MTV's blingtastic Pimp My Ride UK and special performances from Peter Kay, Little Britain, Ricky Gervais, Mitchell and Webb and many more.

Comic Relief Does The Apprentice, BBC One

Sir Alan Sugar's abrasive style comes to Comic Relief.

To raise money ten celebrities battle to build businesses that call for discipline, teamwork, creativity and hard work. Succeed and the team survives.

Fail and their celebrity status won't save them, because the following day Sir Alan's infamous boardroom beckons... and someone will get fired.

Comic Relief Does Fame Academy, BBC One

Thirteen stars will sing for survival as the Academy opens its doors for a new batch of celebrity students.

Whether they're in tune or off key, these celebrity wanabee singers will fight it out for viewers' votes to stay in the competition and raise cash for Red Nose Day 2007.

Casualty: Sweet Charity, BBC One

Richard Curtis has been busy co-writing a special episode of Casualty to coincide with Red Nose Day.

Exploring some key issues that Comic Relief cares about, including mental health, elder abuse and seeking asylum in the UK, it promises to be compelling viewing.

Also watch out for guest appearances from a Comic Relief comedian and favourite ex-cast member!

Inside The World Of Mental Health (title tbc), BBC One

As part of Comic Relief's commitment to raising awareness of mental health, this fly-on-the-wall documentary, co-funded by BBC Learning, explores the lives of people living with mental health problems and shows how Comic Relief cash can help them to cope.

Adrian Edmondson Takes on the Crisis In Northern Kenya (title tbc), BBC One

Comedian and Holby City star Adrian Edmondson travels to Kenya to see Comic Relief cash in action.

He witnesses the effects of the drought and meets the nomadic pastoralists of Wajir who face starvation.

From living with a nomadic Kenyan family to lobbying the UK and Kenyan governments, Adrian's journey takes him from curious bystander to activist for long-term change.

Comic Relief Does Car Booty, BBC One

Led by Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders, famous duos open their car boots to London's bargain hunters at the Big Car Boot Sale.

Selling mounds of clutter to raise cash for Comic Relief, the thrifty teams will be competing for the Car Booty Crown.


Big Waves

Radio stations across the UK are once again fully tuned in to Red Nose Day. Every station is helping to make The Big One live up to its name.

BBC Radio 1: Chris Moyles' ‘Rallyaoke

Following on from the massive success of his Red Nose Day Rally in 2005, Radio 1's Chris Moyles has set himself the whopping great challenge of raising even more cash for RND '07.

Taking the breakfast team's obsession with karaoke to a whole new scale, they plan to tour the UK, hosting karaoke nights at packed-out concert venues up and down the country in the week leading up to Red Nose Day.

Joining Chris and the crew across the week will be a host of Radio 1 DJs and masses of celebrities.

The Truck Of Luck will also reappear, giving out mega-prizes across all Radio 1 shows for RND '07 and raising lots of money along the way.

BBC Radio

It's not just Radio 1 pulling out all the stops for Red Nose Day. Every BBC network station, as well as the dozens of stations in the Nations and Regions stations, will be right behind the Red Nose Day campaign.

Tune in to find out how they'll be turning the radio waves red and raising plenty of cash along the way.

Russell Brand and Ricky Gervais *cringes*

They're both 'new' since the last one, are they not? Plus Little Britain :roll:. Better line up than last time though, if my memory serves me correctly.

Ta Duncan!
