BBC One has secured the first UK television broadcast of One World: Together At Home – a global televised and streamed entertainment special, curated in collaboration with Lady Gaga, which will celebrate the heroic efforts of community health workers around the world
The event will support the COVID-19 Response Fund, powered by the UN Foundation, in the global fight to end COVID-19.
Lorna Clarke, Controller BBC Pop, says: “I’m thrilled that BBC One is to broadcast coverage of this very special event, featuring some of the world’s most loved musicians, to show support to care workers all over the world at this challenging time.” The live global special will take place on this Saturday night, and will be broadcast live on ABC, Bell Media, NBC, Viacom CBS Networks and iHeartMedia in North America. It will feature appearances from the likes of Elton, Alanis Morissette, Eddie Vedder, Friends of Sesame Street, John Legend, Keith Urban, and Stevie Wonder.
The global broadcast will then be adapted and broadcast on BBC One on Sunday, the 19th of April. The BBC One programme will feature highlights from the live event, as well as exclusive performances from UK artists and interviews with front line workers.
Additional performances from the global broadcast on April 18th will be shown on BBC iPlayer from Sunday, the 19th of April.
