Jools Holland presents his 20th annual Hootenanny, and the last one to be filmed at BBC Television Centre, featuring a mixture of veteran artists and modern chart stars. Emeli Sande performs songs from her million-selling Our Version of Events, including a duet with Professor Green, Paloma Faith sings an Etta James number and Petula Clark delivers two of her biggest hits as well as a surprising cover from her forthcoming album. The line-up also includes Adam Ant, Kevin Rowland, Roland Gift, the Hives, Bobby Womack, Lianne La Havas, Bettye LaVette, Jake Bugg, the Dubliners and show stalwart Ruby Turner. As usual, as the clocks strike 12, the Pipes and Drums of the 1st Battalion of the Scots Guards help ring in the new year in their own rousing fashion.
