You gotta love this little bird! I saw it on a St David Attenborough program a year or two ago, but forgot the name of it. Thanks for the reminder and -- as you say -- thank God for YouTube.

It was on QI last night. Well, it was on QI back in April or May, but it was on Dave last night. The reason for the music is a question about who invented the Moonwalk - it was an American dancer from the 20s and 30s called Bill Bailey, but someone said `Michael Jackson.' According to Stephen, Michael Jackson was taught to Moonwalk by Jeffrey Daniel of Shalamar - cue (the other) Bill Bailey and Alan Davies singing `Night To Remember.' And some enterprising YouTuber found the clip and added the song.
Incidentally, I just discovered that someone, somewhere, is posting transcripts of QI. Bless the internet.
