The BBC is looking for video volunteers to take part in a Sound of Music montage on Last Night of the Proms.

The Proms want you to send in your take on Do-Re-Mi which, if selected, will be mixed into a video cut that will air on BBC One on Last Night of the Proms, and be shown at the Royal Albert Hall and at all four Proms in the Park.

Announcing the scheme on Radio 2, acting Proms director Edward Blakeman said: ‘Everyone who took part in our Mary Poppins challenge last year had such fun, and produced such a great range and variety of videos, that we couldn’t resist repeating the challenge with the Sound of Music. ‘Do, Re, Mi’ is one of the great show tunes, and it’s about music itself – so get creative!’

To send in a Do-Re-Mi video, visit the Radio 2 website at

    Can we expect Katie Derham dressed as a nun with Mark Elder offering pithy rubbish after the first chorus? The BBC deserve to be abolished promoting this tosh. Let’s hope David Pickard takes a firmer line with the W1A brigade.
