Make sure you don't forget that David Tennant will be narrating a one-off documentary called Comic Relief: The Fool's Guide tonight. The documentary will take a look at some of the fantastic fundraising events that have taken place in order to raise money for Comic Relief over the past twenty one years and you can view the programme's official synopsis below;

A thoughtful Billy Connolly is passionate about his commitment to Comic Relief and his refusal to indulge himself by crying on camera: "Your duty is not to join in with the crying . . . you won't find me weeping or shaky-lipped." Connolly is just one of the comedy stars who, during the past 21 years, have helped to raise funds for projects throughout Britain and Africa by making films featuring often unimaginable need and despair. The story of Comic Relief is a remarkable one, with its flagship Red Nose Day on BBC1 raising increasingly staggering sums since it began in 1988. (The next RND is on 13 March.) Comic Relief founder Richard Curtis leads us through the story of the charity he founded in response to the Ethiopian famine, illustrated with clips including Dawn French's memorable snog with Hugh Grant, and chats with participants Victoria Beckham and Tony Blair on his "Am I bovvered?" sketch with Catherine Tate.

As well as narrating this documentary, David will also be presenting the first hour of Comic Relief when the official fundraising television event takes place next month. You can view more information about that here in a previous post and visit the official Comic Relief website here. Comic Relief: The Fool's Guide will air tonight at 10:35pm on BBC One and also feature Catherine Tate's charity comedy skecthes. Will you watching this programme tonight?
