Today saw the launch of Children in Need 2010.

John Barrowman and the cast of hit musical We Will Rock You are just some of the acts joining Pudsey at the SECC as Children in Need Rocks Scotland on Friday 19 November.

John Barrowman and Jackie Bird are presenting this year's extravaganza from Glasgow, which will be part of the national Children in Need appeal show.

Other acts are due to be announced in the coming weeks.

The BBC Radio Scotland schedule is as follows:

Kaye Adams gets things underway at 1000 on Call Kaye. She will then hand over to a Children in Need special on MacAulay and Co from 1030, which will include fundraisers and celebrity guests.

Brian Taylor's Big Debate then takes over the helm with a special programme live from Pacific Quay at 1215 - where an audience of children will discuss issues alongside panellists Chick Young and comedian Susan Calman.

The Comedy Café will follow at 1315 and will be tapping into some of the talent on hand for Children in Need Rocks Scotland.

Finally, from 1810 Bryan Burnett and Edith Bowman will take over the airwaves for a special four-hour Children in Need programme.
