Another nomination!

Another day, another nomination…a fifth for Y Diwrnod Mawr. This time the programme’s been nominated for a Welsh Bafta. It’s great to be nominated amongst your peers at home! The competition is no less stiff though – this time we’re up against The Sarah Jane Adventures and a great programme about a little boy whos dad’s in prison. So once again – pleased with the nomination and chuffed to be in good company.

At the moment – I’m editing like it’s going out of fashion! Y Diwrnod Mawr/2 hits the screen on April 25 on S4C’s Cyw – so get ready to meet in the first few weeks Eben, Elan, Marek, Sara Mai and Dylan. More about the other 20 children again.

We’re also looking forward to introducing our brand new hero – Marcaroni – on Cyw on S4C on April 27th. Look out for some pictures here very soon – and some great music composed by the brilliant Caryl Parry Jones and Christian Phillips!

In The Frame!

The certificate that proves our nomination for Children’s Programme in the RTS Awards is now in its frame and destined for the wall in the meeting room in our Rizla House office.

The gong as you may well know went to “Horrible Histories” with it’s brilliant scripting, great acting and recognition that children love knowing things.

It was great to be in the same category as HH and Something Special!

All the 26 children in “Y Diwrnod Mawr” are very special too. We’re currently working with another 26 of them for series 2. They’re equally brilliant and getting up to all sorts of things on their big days – ranging from Freya selling handmade jewellery in Abergavenny market to Eben organising (single-handed which isn’t bad for a six year old) a coffee morning to raise money for the children’s ward where he was treated when he got a sewing needle in his knee. We also go with Marek to visit his maternal grandparents in Poland and see the Wales v Scotland rugby match from the perspective of Dylan who has a foot in both camps as it were. This and much more will air on S4C from April 25th.

At the same time, from April 26th, “Marcaroni” will hit the screen. More about this soon!

London Calling

An excuse to buy a new frock! On my way to the RTS Awards held tonight at the Grosvenor House. Y Diwrnod Mawr (My Big Day) has another nomination – that’s four in total this year (Celtic Media Festival to come in April). Tonight’s category is very tough – we’re up against CBeebies flagship – Something Special – fronted by ALL preschoolers’ favourite Justin and the brilliant Horrible Histories. Thrilled to be with them in Best Childrens Programme. Huge thanks to all the children and their families!

Rose d’Or

I always thought documentary for preschoolers was a no-brainer and thankfully S4C thought so too! And I’m really thrilled to say that the selecting jury for Rose d’Or must have agreed

I’m really proud of this programme – and humbled by the nomination. Of course it wouldn’t have happened without the children and their families. Needless to say, I’m proud of the gret production team too.
