Here's another distinctive offering from the risk-taking BBC. A one-off Saturday night special featuring tribute bands. To make it more appealing, your host is Paddy McGuinness, who says, perhaps with the help of a press officer, "This show is a belter! A talent show that’s only about the talent - with the best tribute acts from around the world singing their hearts out. You'll never have to fork out for expensive concert tickets again. You've got front row seats!"

But wait - it's not just a one-off. There's a Christmas special too. Which is perhaps why the whole shebang is blessed with a "series producer".

Here's the full list of those you need to get a pub night organised at the BBC.

Even Better Than The Real Thing has been commissioned by Charlotte Moore, Director, Content and Kate Phillips, Controller, BBC Entertainment Commissioning. Rachel Ashdown, BBC Entertainment Commissioning Editor is the Commissioning Editor. It is produced by BBC Studios Entertainment, Music and Events in Salford; the Executive Producers are Andrew Cartmell and Kieron Collins, Managing Editor of BBC Studios Entertainment North. The Series Producer is Maisie Maguire.
