Children in Need is the BBC's Corporate charity that aims to improve the lives of children; its vision is to keep children safe, happy and secure, and able to reach their potential.

An annual fundraising evening has been broadcast on BBC1 since 1980, featuring guests from television, radio and film, performances from musicians and singers, and specially produced short sketches from popular shows, all to help promote the charity and encourage viewers to donate. Doctor Who has had a close association with the charity, going back to 1983 when the 20th Anniversary Special The Five Doctors had its premiere during the show!
