Nativity Play - Correction

On Wednesday 17 December, we made a brief mention of a nativity play that the BBC had put on outside our studio. In fact although it was on BBC premises, it was not a BBC production but a Wintershall Nativity production. Sorry for the omission. 

You can find more details on the Wintershall Estate's website

British Forces Support

The British Forces Post Office request that members of the public do not send parcels to show their support for troops but rather make donations to any of the Service charities to help in their work.

These charities are The Soldiers charity, RAF Benevolent fund, Royal Navy & Royal Marine charity and Royal British Legion.

Which batteries last longer?

We will all be needing these over the Christmas period... Batteries. Which ones are the best ones to get for which present? The One Show has been testing them with Warwick University's International Manufacturing Centre to find out if some are better than others. Check out this useful guide from The European Portable Battery Association to make the fun last longer.

Flammable Fancy Dress

Flammable Fancy Dress
The One Show investigated flammable fancy dress for children. We looked at the risks and fire safety standards for fancy dress. 

If you have purchased the 'Garden Tutu' dress from Hamleys and are concerned, you should contact your nearest Hamleys shop or email Gardentutu@hamleys.co.uk they will deal with your concerns immediately.

Additionally, further information on fire safety standards and advice can be found on The Trading Standards website.
