Rolf celebrates 50 years of TV
Rolf Harris
Rolf Harris' TV career has taken many forms
Artist and TV presenter Rolf Harris is to celebrate his 50th anniversary in television with a golden jubilee concert at London's Royal Albert Hall.

The Australian star is expected to perform orchestral versions of some of his best known hits, such as Two Little Boys and Jake the Peg.

The event, which will be held on 29 September and raise money for the Prince's Trust, will be shown on BBC One.

Harris said: "The show at the Royal Albert Hall will be drawn from everything I've done over the years, both musically and artistically, which will be a fantastic experience.

"I can't believe how quickly the years have flown since my first television appearance here in 1953," he said.

Harris will also draw and paint live during the concert.

Harris has presented a wide range of programmes since the 1950s, and today is best known for Rolf on Art and Animal Hospital.
