BBC Creative Services has produced a film supporting the BBC’s coverage of Comic Relief 2001. Launching on 6 February, on BBC1 and BBC2, it features the catchphrase ‘Say Pants To Poverty’, and a new red nose designed by Aardman Animations. The aim is to inform viewers of the date of Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day (16 March) and encourage them to phone for a fund-raising pack. The film features comedian Jonathan Ross as a Pied Piper figure urging people to ‘feel the power of the nose’.
