Light and Tuneful, the BBC’s Wimbledon theme tune, is 40 years old this summer, and Paul Hartnoll, of British electronic dance duo Orbital has teamed up with BBC Sport and BBC Music to give it a new twist.
Originally composed by Keith Mansfield, Light and Tuneful has been remixed and visualised by music legend Paul, and will air as part of BBC’s Wimbledon coverage this week.
How does the show work?
O: Seven strangers are brought together at the start of the week and they are locked in a jury room. They must work together to answer questions correctly and build up as much money as possible but, when it comes to the final round, only one of them can have the chance to win that and leave. They nominate the Final Foreman at the end of the show for that last question. They have no help or interaction with anyone else, only each other’s knowledge and gut instincts to rely on.
W: If the nominated jury member gets the answer right, they could leave with up to £10,000. Get it wrong, they’re off with their tail between their legs. As soon as they’re chosen, they’re leaving. The rest of the jury will try again with a new member joining them the following day. Each new week starts with a fresh cast of seven starting jurors! A new gang.
The 2015 total is the highest amount of money raised by the Charity in its history, and is the culmination of the efforts of every single person across the UK who did something to raise money, from cake baking to sky diving. The money raised will go to community projects across the UK to make a difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people.
Charlotte Moore, Director, BBC Content, says: “What a treat to bring two Great British Bake Off specials to BBC One this Christmas. Mary, Paul, Mel and Sue are the perfect recipe for the festive season.”
Richard McKerrow, Creative Director of Love Productions, comments: “We’re excited to announce that there will be two specials of The Great Christmas Bake Off. What could be a better Christmas gift than welcoming back past bakers for a fun-filled festive Bake Off!”
