It's that time of year again, folks. No, we don't mean the Autumnal Equinox, or the third week back at school (when you actually have to start doing proper work, boo) - we mean it's time once again for more music legends to be inducted into the UK Music Hall Of Fame! The ceremony known to its friends as 'UKMHOF' is in its third year now, and yet more illustrious names from pop's history are lined up to take their place among fellow luminaries.

So, who's due to be inducted this year? Well, how about Brian Wilson, Dusty Springfield, Led Zeppelin, James Brown, Bon Jovi and Rod Stewart? Not to mention Beatles producer Sir George Martin and all-round musical genius Prince.

Swish, eh? The ceremony, held at London's Alexandra Palace, will be screened on C4 on November 16 at 9pm. Among the celebrations will be Brian Wilson playing live, Joss Stone and Patti LaBelle performing two of Dusty Springfield's greatest hits, and Wolfmother doing a tribute to Led Zeppelin! Sounds simply mah-vellous, doesn't it?

And if you weren't lucky enough to have been one of our ticket winners, check back here for exclusive footage of the inductees. In the meantime, why not have a look at our gallery of previous inductees. Brilliant!

Cheers Keithster. So the obvious question: Who's gonna get this from TV to NPF? I'll tape it if I can find a blank VHS in time, but there's probably a more efficient way. The offer's there anyway.

Mrs drafsack nearly brought tickets to a before show event with the Bon Jovi fan site she visits - they only wanted ?300 a ticket. Fortuanatly (or not as the case may be) Mrs Drafsacks sister (an equally sad BJ fan) is very pooley.

I have decided to record it all in high quality ( 1 hour per disc ) and then edit the adverts out etc and put nice chapters in etc.

Is your broadcast in a bitrate higher than the DVD standard play to actually warrant using the high quality setting?

I recorded it from Sky Digital. I thought the HQ 1hr option would be the same as the Sky broadcast?

Sky Digital broadcasts at upto 6mbps while DVD standard play is 8mbps so youre not actually getting anything extra from the recording by using anything above the standard play setting Keith.
