White Van Man

White Van Man

Didn't catch the fantastic first series of White Van Man? Shame on you. But not to worry - you can catch the very best bits on the Red Button. Plus you'll have all the info you need to really enjoy Series Two!

Will Mellor plays good guy Ollie, the proverbial man with a van, written by stand-up comedian Adrian Poynton. In Series 1, Ollie reluctantly put his dreams of running a restaurant on the back burner when his ailing father, Tony, turned to him to take over the family handyman business. Unfortunately for Ollie, the business comes complete with a dodgy van, some questionable tips and an even dodgier assistant, Darren (Joel Fry).

What's the Score?

Can you imagine the BBC's Match Of The Day without the opening music? Ski Sunday without that unforgettable tune? Or Rocky Balboa bounding up those famous steps in silence?

On Friday 24 February from 7.00pm to 9.00pm you can join Colin Murray on the Red Button as he presents an evening of music and sport. In a special edition of Kicking Off, BBC Radio 5 live will team up with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra to celebrate some of the best loved sporting theme tunes of all time.

Each song features lyrics and a bouncing coconut to highlight each word as it's sung so parents and children can zing along! The words to the songs are also available on the CBeebies grownups website - bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/grownups

Bleak Old Shop of Stuff

In a remarkable and audacious experiment, The Bleak Old Shop of Stuff is the first television programme in over one hundred and seventeen years to be made using traditional Victorian television making techniques. Honestly. Here on the Red Button we'll show you how the sometimes relatively fearless cast and crew coped with steam cameras, on-set urchins and the occasional cholera outbreak behind the scenes.
