Wogan returns to BBC Radio 2

Sir Terry Wogan was back on BBC Radio 2 for the first of his brand new show, Weekend Wogan.

The new programme, live from the Radio Theatre in Broadcasting House, was filmed by Wise Buddah for watching online later.

The show includes interviews, music and performances, plus a weekly recital of an infamous "Janet and John" story and feature familiar voices such as John "Boggy" Marsh.

Video recording of the show will be available on the Radio 2 website, with highlights on also on the BBC Red Button.

Lewis Carnie, Head of Programmes, Radio 2 and 6 Music: "Terry's new show will be the perfect accompaniment to Sunday brunch, which will be the magical combination of Terry's warmth and unique persona, with some of the entertainment world's leading lights. I hope that fans of Weekend Wogan enjoy listening to the show on Sunday, and watching the highlights package online from Monday morning."

The rights to film the new show was hotly contested for, and Wise Buddah's Head of Digital and Business Development Russ Williams told RadioToday.co.uk: “This is fantastic for Wise Buddah. We’re delighted to win this and looking forward to delivering very high quality video content for the BBC.”

Weekend Wogan is produced by Alan Boyd and launched Sunday (14 February) at 11am. The show will be broadcast in three blocks of 12 programmes throughout the year.
