Children in Need: Got It Covered, featuring Shaun Dooley, Olivia Colman and Luke Evans

BBC One and BBC Children in Need announce the launch of Children in Need: Got It Covered, a brand new venture for 2019 which involves some of the UK’s biggest names from stage and screen as they band together to produce an entire album of cover songs, whilst helping to make a positive difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people throughout the UK.

A whole host of critically-acclaimed actors have volunteered their time to play a special part in this incredibly exciting project for BBC Children in Need this year.

A special 60-minute programme will follow the entire recording process and explore all the behind-the-scenes action, as the actors face the challenging task of laying down their bespoke tracks at the legendary recording studios Rak and Abbey Road Studios in London. Each of the actors will handpick a song that is most significant to them and receive expert guidance from Brit and Mercury award-winning record producers and songwriters Guy Chambers and Jonathan Quarmby.

Renowned vocal coach Mark De-Lisser will also be at hand to assist the actors with producing their tracks. The programme will also shine a light on the projects funded by BBC Children in Need, with a selection of the actors visiting projects to see first hand the difference their support will make to young lives.

The programme will be broadcast on BBC One ahead of the annual BBC Children in Need Appeal show. The album, in aid of BBC Children in Need, will be released in conjunction with Silva Screen Records and is set to be released later in the year.

Children In Need: Got It Covered is co-produced by Shaun Dooley (20four7films) and features Shaun, Olivia Colman and Luke Evans.
