The last Monday in August means among other things the end of the Edinburgh Festival, and as someone who works for a comedy website collecting thousands of reviews all I can say is: “Thank God!”

However, one of the other things that happens this day is the Tattoo. This year is a special Tattoo as it marks the centenary of the RAF, so you can expect some suitably fitting musical tie-ins to the event.

The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is on BBC One at 19.00.
