# Summer evening on the Champs Elysees

0:01:010:01:05

# A secret rendezvous they planned for days

0:01:050:01:08

# A sea of faces in a crowded cafe

0:01:080:01:12

# The sound of laughter as the music plays

0:01:120:01:15

# Jean-Claude was a student at the Universite

0:01:310:01:36

# Louise-Marie was just a world away

0:01:360:01:39

# He recalled the night they met was warm with laughter

0:01:430:01:47

# The words were music as she turned away

0:01:470:01:52

# I'll meet you at midnight

0:01:520:01:55

# Under the moonlight

0:01:570:01:59

# I'll meet you at midnight

0:02:000:02:02

# But Jean-Claude, Louise-Marie will never be

0:02:020:02:07

# Each cigarette will light 1,000 faces

0:02:200:02:24

# Each hour that passed seemed like 1,000 years

0:02:240:02:27

# Midnight was turning into empty spaces

0:02:310:02:34

# The sound of laughter disappeared

0:02:340:02:37

# I'll meet you at midnight

0:02:400:02:43

# Another moonlight!

0:02:440:02:46

# I'll meet you at midnight

0:02:480:02:51

# But Jean-Claude, Louise-Marie will never be

0:02:510:02:54

# A summer morning on the Champs Elysees

0:03:110:03:14

# The empty tables of the street cafes

0:03:140:03:18

# Sunlight melting through an open doorway

0:03:220:03:26

# Jean-Claude is left to face another day

0:03:260:03:29

# I'll meet you at midnight

0:03:320:03:34

# Another moonlight

0:03:350:03:37

# I'll meet you at midnight

0:03:390:03:41

0:03:590:04:01

There we are, Smokie. One of my favourites at the moment, called I'll Meet You At Midnight.

0:04:040:04:08

If we go right up in the charts, in fact to three, why don't we have a drink with The Wurzels?

0:04:080:04:13

Because they are going to give us a nice half pint of that lovely scrumpy they call cider.

0:04:130:04:18

# When the moon shines on the cow shed

0:04:210:04:25

# And we're rolling in the hay

0:04:250:04:28

# All the cows are up there grazing

0:04:280:04:31

# And the milk is on its way... #

0:04:310:04:34

IMITATES A MACHINE

0:04:340:04:38

# ..I am a cider drinker

0:04:380:04:40

# I drinks it all of the day

0:04:400:04:44

# I am a cider drinker

0:04:450:04:48

# It soothes all my troubles away

0:04:480:04:51

# Ooh arr, ooh arr, aay Ooh arr, ooh arr aay... #

0:04:510:04:54

Rub 'em down, young 'un!

0:04:540:04:57

# ..It's so cosy in the kitchen

0:04:570:05:00

# With the smell of rabbit stew

0:05:000:05:04

# When the breeze blows 'cross the farmyard

0:05:040:05:07

# You can smell the cowshed too... #

0:05:070:05:10

I've never smelled nothing like it in all my life!

0:05:100:05:14

# ..When those combine wheels stops turning

0:05:140:05:17

# And the hard day's work is done

0:05:170:05:20

# There's a pub around the corner

0:05:200:05:23

# It's the place we'll have our fun... #

0:05:230:05:27

You bet we'll have some fun!

0:05:270:05:30

# ..I am a cider drinker

0:05:300:05:33

# I drinks it all of the day

0:05:330:05:37

# I am a cider drinker

0:05:370:05:40

# It soothes all my troubles away

0:05:400:05:43

# Oooh aar, ooh aar, aay Ooh, aar, ooh aar, aay... #

0:05:430:05:46

Proper job, young 'un! Come and try some!

0:05:460:05:49

# ..Now dear old Mable When she's able

0:05:490:05:53

# We takes a stroll down Lover's Lane

0:05:530:05:57

# And we'll sink a pint of scrumpy

0:05:570:05:59

# And we'll play old nature's game... #

0:05:590:06:03

HE LAUGHS

0:06:030:06:04

Oooh aar! Oooh aar!

0:06:040:06:06

# ..But we ends up in the duck pond.. #

0:06:060:06:08

HE QUACKS

0:06:080:06:09

# ..When the pub decides to close

0:06:090:06:12

# With my breeches full o' tadpoles

0:06:120:06:15

# And the newts between my toes... #

0:06:150:06:19

Come on, my beauties!

0:06:190:06:21

# ..I am a cider drinker

0:06:220:06:25

0:06:320:06:35

# Ooh aar, ooh aar aay Ooh aar, ooh aar aay... #

0:06:350:06:39

Come on, young 'uns! Get up for it now!

0:06:390:06:41

# ..I am a cider drinker

0:06:410:06:45

# I drinks it all of the day... #

0:06:450:06:49

APPLAUSE

0:06:490:06:51

That's the sound of The Wurzels there.

0:06:510:06:54

They're at number three with I Am A Cider Drinker.

0:06:540:06:56

We're going to change the mood somewhat, dramatically in fact,

0:06:560:06:59

and a lovely song called Loving And Free from the very lovely Kiki Dee.

0:06:590:07:03

# Bound I am bound

0:07:120:07:14

# Like the knots in a string

0:07:140:07:18

# Eager to be where my life can begin

0:07:200:07:25

# Out of the shadow

0:07:270:07:30

# And in to the sun

0:07:300:07:32

# So many things that I should have done

0:07:340:07:39

# I will untangle myself

0:07:420:07:46

# So that I can see

0:07:490:07:52

# I will untangle myself

0:07:570:08:01

# Everything will be

0:08:040:08:07

# Loving and free

0:08:120:08:15

# Bound I am bound

0:08:210:08:25

# Like the rope on a swing

0:08:250:08:27

# Up in the air and then down again

0:08:300:08:34

# Sure for the first time

0:08:370:08:39

# So clear in my mind

0:08:390:08:42

# Wise to the feeling I gently unwind

0:08:450:08:49

# I will untangle myself

0:08:520:08:58

# So that I can see

0:08:590:09:02

# I will untangle myself

0:09:060:09:11

# Everything will be

0:09:140:09:17

# Loving and free

0:09:220:09:25

# Bound I am bound

0:09:310:09:34

# To remember your smile

0:09:340:09:37

# Something so special doesn't fade away

0:09:400:09:44

# Sadness is sweet when you're gone for a while

0:09:470:09:53

# When I see you there'll be a lot to say

0:09:550:09:59

# And I will

0:09:590:10:02

# I will untangle myself

0:10:020:10:08

# So that I can see

0:10:080:10:14

# Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

0:10:140:10:17

# I will untangle myself

0:10:170:10:22

# Everything will be

0:10:240:10:28

which is the theme music to Sailor, which is another BBC Programme

0:16:230:16:27

0:16:270:16:30

Now we have Ruby Flipper, dancing to this week's number 19,

0:16:300:16:34

a fabulous American DJ, Rick Dees & His Cast Of Idiots, and The Disco Duck!

0:17:040:17:08

# All of a sudden I began to change

0:17:160:17:20

# I was on the dance floor acting strange

0:19:040:19:09

You're probably wondering what's happening, and so am I!

0:19:090:19:13

But somebody said I should go to work on an egg!

0:19:130:19:16

Now, you can tell the pantomime season is approaching.

0:19:160:19:20

This is one of the heaviest eggs I've ever seen.
