About the Series
We are delighted that Katie Morag Series One has won the Best Children's Awards at recent Freesat TV and Royal Television Society Scotland Events.
We are very aware that we couldn't have been on that stage without an awful lot of people's help and cleverness. Firstly and obviously to Mairi Hedderwick for creating this fantabulous world of strong women, nurturing men and feisty children. Then to the writers, the crew, the cast, the extras, the suppliers, the funders, the commissioners, the communities in Lewis and Cromarty and indeed Coll, and our family and chums.
Special mentions must go to all the children in the series, particularly, Finlay and Peter MacMillan, who jointly played Liam so brilliantly, and Cherry Campbell, whose portrayal of Katie Morag we're sure you'll agree is quite breathtaking and her mannerisms are sometimes so uncannily like Mairi's drawings it it flabbergasting.
To all of you, bless your cotton socks.
And we are about to embark on our second series, filming again in Lewis this summer, the series will be aired on CBeebies and CBBC next Spring.
And a DVD of the first series will be available this August.
Thanks to all of you for your lovely wishes and emails, we're working our way through, so if you don't get an immediate response, you will.
And it has to be said, some of your messages might have brought a wee grain of sand up from the beach, and into our eyes.
