Review / Synopsis.

The 1997 "Red Nose Day" event was held on 14 March.

Its slogan for the year was "Small Change – Big Difference". The event raised over £27m for charitable causes.

The Spice Girls song "Who Do You Think You Are" became the official Comic Relief single of this event and sold 672,577 copies.

The telethon was hosted by Father Ted Crilly (Dermot Morgan) and Father Dougal McGuire (Ardal O'Hanlon), characters from the Irish sitcom Father Ted.

Highlights included a parody of the hit BBC production "Pride And Prejudice", renamed "Rest & Recreation", starring Alison Steadman, Miranda Richardson, Benjamin Whitrow, Rupert Graves and Tara Fitzgerald.
