TV Times - - Film Guide -

mu­sic / 8.30pm / BBC1

since chil­dren in Need be­gan in 1980 and what with al­most ev­ery band from the decade re­unit­ing, it must have been a no-brainer for the BBC to de­cide the theme of this con­cert. So if you Some­times love singing Karma Chameleon at the karaoke on a Satur­day night, af­ter im­bib­ing a few glasses of Red Red Wine, then tune in, as Era­sure, Boy Ge­orge and (some of ) UB40 take to the stage at the SSE Arena, Wem­b­ley, along­side such big hit­ters as A-ha, OMD, Ja­son Dono­van, Mica Paris and Bana­narama, who don’t seem to have changed much since their hey­day. Ap­pro­pri­ately, DJ Ro­man Kemp (son of Span­dau Bal­let’s Martin) will be back­stage to catch up with some of his dad’s old mu­si­cal bud­dies.

Nos­tal­gia: Bana­narama and Ja­son Dono­van
