He's totally the wrong guy for this can't stand him anyway I agree OP.

Bombaybunty Sat 09-May-15 21:54:37

The whole thing is very dull.

mrsdavidbowie Sat 09-May-15 21:59:14

I detest Chris Evans. Hyper and bleats on about his bloody kids too much

Sparklingbrook Sat 09-May-15 22:08:08

Was Jane Horrocks genuinely overcome or acting?

LavazzaLover Sat 09-May-15 22:08:15

Im just taking in the other artists. Very moving.

balletgirlmum Sat 09-May-15 22:09:27

I couldn't tell sparkling which shows how good she is. I think it was genuine

Bombaybunty Sat 09-May-15 22:09:32

I think she was moved and upset.

balletgirlmum Sat 09-May-15 22:09:51

Agree about Chris Evans.

it was genuine, i was listening on the radio (which was broadcast an hour earlier) and it was really moving.

Dull BombayBunty?

Did you listen to that letter Jane Horrocks read?

HSMMaCM Sat 09-May-15 22:10:34

I think she was really struggling with her emotions.

Sparklingbrook Sat 09-May-15 22:12:03

I thought it was real. She was shaking. sad Just wasn't sure if she was acting. V emotional.

balletgirlmum Sat 09-May-15 22:12:31

It must be really hard to perform stuff like that.

Dd is currently rehearsing a dance based on the idea of families waving their men off to the war. 10 leave but only 3 return & she's struggling with the emotions.

Sparklingbrook Sat 09-May-15 22:13:43

Oh, it's Wolfie. smile

Alexander Armstrong has a good voice doesn't he? I was very surprised when I realised who it was.

Yes Chris Evans was a crap choice.

Cooroo Sat 09-May-15 22:15:26

I know it shouldn't matter but the poem says "they shall grow not old", not "they shall not grow old". It jarred. Surely he could have learned the bloody words??

Bombaybunty Sat 09-May-15 22:15:58

The readings are good. The entertainers are very dull.

Sparklingbrook Sat 09-May-15 22:16:35

Chas and Dave again. grin

Ludways Sat 09-May-15 22:18:52

I blubbed right through Jane Horrocks, no mother should lose a son, when she started to cry I was beyond tears.

I'm normally very hard faced but the wars always floor me.

LeicJess Sat 09-May-15 22:19:15

Chris Evans is spoiling it, he sounds so insincere. He has all the animation of someone reading a shopping list.

Sparklingbrook Sat 09-May-15 22:20:24

Chris Evans hair is a bit weird.

Is Gareth Malone not around? He always sets the right tone.

Hepzibar Sat 09-May-15 22:22:14

I normally like Chris Evans but he is a bit wooden tonight.

Chas and Dave were fab - and they don't look any older!

Not convinced by Jane Horrocks.

Love Alfie Boe.

Chas n Dave were my faves.

Oh God - they just ruined it with Kathryn Jenkins.

nikki1978 Sat 09-May-15 22:22:18

Urgh fucking Katherine Jenkins voice goes right through me <shudder>

balletgirlmum Sat 09-May-15 22:22:28

Love Alfie, hate KJ
