    Radio 4 comedy in Edinburgh

    Head of Interactive, Radio 3

    Here's the quite lovely video that the Radio 4 comedy gang shot on The Royal Mile at the beginning of the Edinburgh Festival. It was made specially for use on the red button and it was a hit. Well over half a million people pressed the red button on their digital TVs and watched it there - something of a breakthrough for Radio 4 content.

    You'll see Paul Merton, Mark Watson, Nicholas Parsons, Susan Calman, Stephen K Amos and others entertaining festival-goers on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

    This film contains extended highlights of the event, including a special edition of Just a Minute with Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills.
