BBC THREE Children in Need Event

BBC THREE Autumn 2006


BBC THREE Children In Need Event (working title)


A brand-new reality event, stripped over two weeks and culminating on BBC Children In Need night, sees a battle of the blow-dry as a group of celebrities go head to head to see who can crimp their way to the top.


For this year's BBC Children In Need night, the backstage hair, make-up and wardrobe department will be in the hands of our unqualified celebs.


Under the tutelage of a top-name hairdresser, the celebs will train in all elements of hair, beauty and fashion.


In the two weeks before the big night they'll be working flat out practising on members of the public (and any passing BBC stars) in the specially designed hair and beauty "green room", plonked in the heart of BBC Television Centre.


They'll have a crash course in cutting and styling hair, wardrobe, make-up and even a bit of bikini-line waxing.


On the night itself, our beauty boot-camp event culminates with behind-the-scenes updates from backstage, as viewers watch the stars taking part in BBC Children In Need bravely being made up by our novices.


Can our apprentice celebrites cut it? Or will they get the snip?

Jonathan Ross's Japanorama


Jonathan Ross's Japanorama


Jonathan Ross pursues his passion for all things Nipponese in this series focusing on six aspects of modern Japanese
culture -


Nerds: long scorned worldwide, the nerd has become the toast of Japan, with women queuing up for his geeky charms.


Tribes: the Japanese may not be divided by race or religion but, thanks to some amazing uniforms, they neatly divide themselves into tribes: girl bikers, Lolita Goths and Yakuza.


Comedy: from the original Jackass to a comedy robot and a reigning king called Hard Gay Man, something funny is going on over there.


Cool: the cool looks and sounds of tomorrow are in Japan today – robots, pop videos, phones, tunes and even shoes.


Cute: Hello Kitty is only the pink tip of Japan's cute iceberg. The country that bottled cute now has an incredibly popular (and vicious) new character called Gloomy Bear.


That Samurai Spirit: swords and shoguns are out, but the spirit can still be found in battling beetles, lethal schoolgirls and a goalkeeping crustacean that can stop nine out of 10 penalty kicks.
