What does the Children’s BAFTA Awards mean to you?
I think it’s important to recognise Children’s Television and nurture the talent within this sector.
Being such a legendary television figure yourself, what is it that you personally like to watch on TV?
“I watch documentaries of most kinds, I watch the news, I watch sport, I don’t watch serials and I don’t watch reality programmes.
Do you have a favourite programme?
“Not particularly, I mean one programme that I nearly always watch is the television news and I watch that most days.”
Do you ever watch your own shows?
“Sometimes, yes, it’s quite interesting making programmes, particularly if they’re transmitted rather later than you finished them, it may be two months before you see them, and then you maybe can’t remember what the next shot is going to be or what the length of that sentence is going to be and so you can assess whether it’s any good or not.”
