Children in Need Single 2009

Love Peter Kay's Children in Need Single for 2009.

They created the video with five decades of children's telly characters. See if you can see your favourite from when you were little. They're mostly BBC characters but a few are from other places too.

Caught a glimpse of Bagpuss my daughter's favourite, Peppa Pig, my grand daughter's obsession at the moment and I even saw mine in glorious black and white, Muffin the Mule!

The Google Ads get on your nerves but at least you can close them down.

It was really interesting watching how the video was made here on the BBC's Pudsey website.

Hayley Westenra

My earlier post on We'll Meet Again included a video of this lovely little Kiwi who is one of my favourite singers. I play her CD, Pure a lot!

Here, in a live performance in New Zealand in 2005, she's singing one of my favourite songs from the CD. Love the lyrics, very thought provoking.

What a gorgeous voice she has.

For anyone interested in the original music, it's (Marcel) Ravel's Pavane Pour Une Infante Defunte.

Roy Orbison

When I was a teenager I had lots of lovely LPs with their beautiful covers and one of my favourite singers was Roy Orbison. I was luck...
