BBC THREE Autumn 2006
Children In Need Event
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
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?

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
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
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.
