Jo Brand, John Craven and Chris Packham

Earlier in the year, Countryfile asked viewers to submit original photographs under the title "Walk on the Wild Side". The theme was open to interpretation but sought images featuring wildlife, wild landscapes or even wild weather.

As selected by the judges, the final 12 photos will appear in the 2013 Countryfile Calendar to be sold in aid of the BBC's Children In Need appeal.

The overall winner, voted for by Countryfile viewers, will be able to choose from a range of the latest photography equipment to the value of £1,000.

The judges will also choose their favourite entry. This photographer will be able to choose equipment to the value of £500. Last year's calendar raised more than £1.2m for Children In Need.

Press the Red Button after Sunday's programme to view the twelve finalists and details on how to vote for your favourite.

Here on the Red Button we get to peek behind the scenes and get the inside story on the investments made in the Den each week. What attracted the Dragons to the business? What did the other Dragons make of the deals? And why did the entrepreneurs take the deal they did in the Den?

    Wed 12th September, 11:10pm-6:05am Is this the whole concert being shown again? (it is the same length as what the concert should be)

    Also do you know if on all of the times will it play selected songs from selected artists or will it play the whole set by a certain artist? If so, do you know which artists will be on when?

  • Comment number 2.

    Dissappointed to see Proms concert apparantly not available on BBC red button today 8th Sep via Freeview East of London. Channel 105 BBC Red Button has neither sound nor picture - just a silent black screen.

  • Comment number 3.

    Ok, fair enough that 'Friday Night is Music Night' is being shown live on Freeview - after all, it's a special event. But, surely Scrum V could be shown delayed, at say 10pm, and then loops of the 'Friday Night...' could continue at midnight? Freeview viewers deserve more choice!!! This is possible - after all, next week according to the BBC sport website, you're showing 'delayed' coverage of cycling on Freeview? Please consider a delayed showing on Friday of the rugby!

    "You can also watch all four concerts in full on BBC iPlayer from Sunday 9th September, for seven days."

    I've been looking for the Belfast Proms In The Park since yesterday morning, but it's not available on either iPlayer online, or on connected Freesat TV. When will it be there? From what I saw on Saturday night, Belfast got rather a raw deal in the 'edited highlights'.
