About the Series
Listen up everybody there is a fabbydoo exhibition going on in Lewis just now, all about the Katie Morag Series!
It features some of Mairi's original drawings, and some props from the filming, and a wee story about the croft house that was used as Grannie Island's house in the series. AND it also has the entire inside room of Grannie Island's so you can sit on her couch and gaze at all her lovely things! It really is a fantasmagorical exhibition and it's on at the An Lanntair Gallery in Stornoway in Lewis .. check it out. ..here is their website..
It's on until the End of June!
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 have now won seven awards for series one and we feel very happy and very lucky.
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.
The entire series one DVD is now available.
In WH Smith BHS HMV Argos. amongst other places.
