JLS Sing Sport Relief


JLS host this special show from the O2 in London for Sport Relief

Join the boys as they perform many of their big tunes in a spectacular all singing-all dancing live show which also involves the odd bit of acrobatics.

They'll also be joined on the day by special guests Olly Murs and Rizzle Kicks who will be performing some of their own big tunes along with the odd surprise star turn to interrupt proceedings.

The red button audience will be treated to some exclusive extra performances after the concert on BBC3.

To find out how to donate and more go to Sport Relief.

Story of Wales

World War ll brought wholesale destruction to many towns in Britain. In Swansea it was the heavy and sustained bombing by the Luftwaffe over three nights in February 1941 that has remained etched in Brian Legg's memory and you can hear his story on the red button.

World War II was also a trigger for a sea-change in employment opportunities for women in Wales. Women took jobs in munitions and aircraft factories, as well as civilian jobs left empty by men.

Press red to discover how the post war years brought women into the workforce and instigated a change in the whole of the Welsh economy.
