Tomorrow night sees the climax of this year's BBC Proms. It's been a record-breaking season - with 94% attendance for evenings at the Royal Albert Hall. Over 300,000 will have attended a Prom by the time the season finishes. In July, on the day of the First Night, we spoke to Proms Director Roger Wright about his hopes for the season. Yesterday we spent the afternoon with Conductor Edward Gardner as he rehearsed the BBC Symphony Orchestra and soprano Susan Bullock for the Last Night. Click 'play' for the result. It's going to be a remarkable evening.
