At a time when demand for children’s television is soaring, production company Terrific Television is gaining huge viewer ratings. Their CBeebies shows My World Kitchen and Nick Cope’s Popcast (made in collaboration with digital company Complete Control) are proving popular with audiences.
My World Kitchen (narrated by Ainsley Harriott) clinched the top spot on CBeebies viewing figures on the May 16th weekend, whilst new show Nick Cope’s Popcast made number 6 on the list.
Terrific Teleivison is founded and co-directed by Driana Jones and Nic Ayling; the pair have over 50 years’ experience of making children’s television between them, serving as producers on iconic titles including Art Attack and Teletubbies among others.
Jones said: “This is an unprecidented time in the demand for children’s television. We are really pleased that we have been able to deliver Nick Cope’s Popcast during lockdown and My World Kitchen has continued airing – when so many young people need positive messaging and education through fun. To gain such a huge audience share is brilliant and shows that the current home learning situation is heavily tapping into television as an educational resource.
“My World Kitchen and Nick Cope’s Popcast both educate through fun and, we hope, provide an antidote to children’s boredom and potential unhappiness caused by the current climate,” added Jones.
