It's music, comedy and a trip down memory lane on the Red Button this week.

The Folk Music Awards are live on Red Button with a highlights package available all week too.  We’re going behind the scenes at Blandings, the fab new BBC One comedy and you can join Sir David Attenborough  as he presents the highlights from his early years in broadcasting as part of the BBC Four collection.

Here's a look at what's in store - and if you want to stay updated throughout the week, why not follow us on Twitter or visit BBC Red Button

    Comment number 1.

    last year the red button did not work for the BBC Folk Awards programme which was disappointing. Will it work this year? or am I to be disappointed again? Appreciate an answer before Weds night.

    I am sorry that the decision has been made to take the Read Hear Pages and Community Pages off BBC Red Button Digital Text in the next few weeks. For those without internet access, both were useful services to have at the touch of a few buttons.

    Comment number 4.

    And it is odd that pages 1040 and 1050 should be discontinued by the BBC seeing as it is two people from the CSV Action Network who edit the content for those pages rather than the BBC Red Button Text Services team.

    BoltonLane, thanks for your comment. Last year, there was a technical fault which meant Virgin viewers were unable to watch the live coverage, but the highlights became available the following day. We hope you enjoyed this year’s coverage of the Radio 2 Folk Awards, highlights of which continue until Friday 8 February on Red Button.
