To mark the 100th anniversary of the annual star-studded extravaganza, this documentary, narrated by Phillip Schofield, tells the story of a show that over the past century has entertained generations of the royal family and raised huge sums for charity. Among the celebrities recalling classic moments from the event's illustrious history are Bruce Forsyth, Barry Manilow, Ronnie Corbett, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Liza Minnelli, Katherine Jenkins and Cilla Black. There's also a look behind the scenes of this year's event, which was hosted by David Walliams at the Royal Albert Hall.
