About the Series
A happy New Year to everyone!
Hope you all sang Auld Lang Syne!
It was quite a year for us 2014. We filmed the second series over the summer months, and we are just about to deliver the last of the programmes to CBeebies, ready for the NEW SERIES to begin very soon. As soon as we have a date we'll let you know!
We also won a few awards for series one, much to our delight and amazement! Probably the most exciting one, though they are all special, was the Children's BAFTA for Cherry Campbell for best performer, she became the youngest BAFTA winner ever!
We also won another BAFTA for best Drama at the Children's Baftas, and won in the Best Children's Programme catagory at the following awards: The Freesat awards, the RTS Scotland awards and the Scottish Baftas!
We are excited also to be nominated in Kidscreen for Best New Drama and in the Broadcast awards, which are coming up next month.
It's all rather overwhelming, but we're just delighted that the programmes have gone down so well and we really hope that you will all enjoy Series Two as much !
The first two DVDs of series one are in shops, and the third one is coming out at Easter time.
They are in WH Smith BHS HMV Argos and Amazon.. amongst other places so look out for them both ...
Katie Morag Delivers the Mail & lots of other stories!
Katie Morag and the Halloween Pirate & lots of other stories!
Katie Morag Series One is being repeated currently on a Sunday afternoon on CBeebies at 5.30, so look out for that too.
Thanks to all of you for your lovely wishes and emails, we're working our way through them, 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.
We are very aware that we wouldn't have such a greatly loved series 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.
To all of you, bless your cotton socks.
