Children In Need: What are you doing?

by Andrew MacGregor


Children In Need: “Things” - 30s

This fun Children in Need promo encourages us to do our thing. Whether itís stuffing our gobs with marshmallows or channeling our inner Chewbacca, the telethon salutes those with an unusual or eye-catching talent.... ideal fundraising material.

Diverse and eccentric, the ad invites everyone to do their bit for charity. Viewers will chime with at least one activity shown here - good to see the Beeb still have a soft spot for baking, too. Meanwhile, Derek Jacobiís VO brings Shakespearean brio to the script.
