Prom Night : Live at the Royal Albert Hall (DVD)

In 1985, the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain dreamed of filling the Royal Albert Hall in London with the sound of ukuleles. On Tuesday 18th August 2009, at the BBC Proms, the Ukes attracted a sold-out audience; more than six thousand people, of which over a thousand brought their ukuleles.
