Clap your hands, stamp your feet and laugh along as comedian and conductor Rainer Hersch hosts a brand new Yuletide treat – a jamboree of classic UK Singles Chart Christmas Number Ones. He promises singalong, stand-up comedy and a show-stopping trip down memory lane, with some cracking tunes along the way. Do they know it’s Christmas? After this – no doubt about it.
From The Beatles to Mr Blobby, Harry Belafonte to the Human League and Benny Hill to the Military Wives, the race for the Christmas Number One tells a unique story about the past half-century of British pop culture. Expect 'Bohemian Rhapsody', 'Hallelujah! Chorus', 'Merry Christmas Everybody', 'Only You, Ernie (the fastest milkman in the West)' and 'Mull of Kintyre'. Plus, a selection of cast-iron classics, including 'Twelve Days of Christmas', 'Jingle Bells and 'Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer'.
