I'm sure the BBC scoured the world looking for a video streaming partner to showcase recordings made for Radio 1's Live Lounge.

Radio 1 Controller Ben Cooper and BBC Worldwide Radio & Music boss Dominic Walker lighted upon Vevo, where CEO Erik Huggers arrived in March. Erik was in charge of matters online and technological at the BBC from 2007 to 2011. Earlier this month he announced the appointment of former Radio 1 Controller Andy Parfitt as interim head of content and programming. Andy was Ben Cooper's boss for five years.

Vevo is jointly owned by Universal Music and Sony. Universal Music's artists include Adele. Adele has lighted upon the BBC to make  a paean of praise  a programme which will showcase her new album. It will be distributed by BBC Worldwide, who will make two versions available, one with and one without Graham Norton.
