We are delighted to announce that the Ingenious backed production Topsy and Tim has been awarded the Children’s BAFTA for Pre-School Live Action. The popular CBeebies programme follows the everyday adventures of two fun-loving twins, based on the classic children’s books by Jean and Gareth Adamson.
Sixteen South, for whom Ingenious investee companies backed both series of Lily’s Driftwood Bay, also won a BAFTA for Independent Production Company. Thanking Ingenious as he collected the BAFTA, Sixteen South creative director Colin Williams said: “When I decided to try this whole TV business, there were three things that I said were really important: passion, heart and quality and over the last eight years, I’m thrilled to have been joined by an amazing group of people who also live and breathe these three things.”1
Having been involved in the production of a further five Children’s BAFTA nominees including Teletubbies, Sarah and Duck and Clangers, the ceremony which took place on 20 November was a resounding success for Ingenious.
