moving a batten lamp and replacing a switch


I want to move a batten style lampholder and replace a switch. The switch is two gang wired to switch to separate lamps the switch as all red wires with two blacks in a connector. The batten as single core black in one side and single core black in the other side with a two core red and black. I tried to follow exactly as it was wired and i am now afraid lost. I cannot get any lights to work. what did i do wrong? Any advice will be much appreciated.

If you look carefully and you haven't pulled it off some of the blacks should have a little red sleeve at the end. They are "switched lives".
It'd help if you had another go at your second sentence, I can't work out what you meant to say.
