Children in Need - 2009 - Part 1: Children in Need Northern Ireland
Sir Terry Wogan, Tess Daly and Alesha Dixon throw a spectacular party for Pudsey with a whole host of stars doing something different for Children in Need in London and at the King's Hall in Belfast. John Daly, Eamonn Holmes and Claire McCollum are in party mood too.
Alesha and the stars of Strictly Come Dancing get the party started with a dazzling show-opener. The magic is back as Merlin conjures up some wizard ideas for this year's appeal, and get ready for a world exclusive as the official Children in Need single is launched. Ronan Keating, the Sugababes, Tinchy Stryder, N-Dubz and Escala are just some of the musical stars lined up in Belfast.
In a titanic battle, Stephen Nolan and Gerry Anderson make a Dash for Cash across the country, asking the public to part with Pounds for Pudsey. A very important patient checks into Holby General, raising the temperature for the cast of Casualty, while Britain's favourite boy band JLS get pulses racing with a special performance. Plus, watch out for a unique bite-sized episode of Walk on the Wild Side.
There's a special version of Panic Attack with Stephen Nolan challenging our local celebrities to pit their wit and wisdom against each other. Those taking part include May McFettridge, Eoghan Quigg, Ciaran McMenamin, Ben Clarke and Gemma Garrett.
