The World According to Grandpa

Saffron Cherry Productions, Channel 5 Milkshake! BFI YACF, S4C


- Live Action: Children

The Guardian called Grandpa “guilt free TV for kids”. The Times described it as “adorable escapism which should be treasured as such”. Its production model won industry plaudits for its innovation as both series have also been remade in Welsh using the same (translated) scripts, animation and score for the national broadcaster S4C. “Grandpa is a show that YACF was delighted to support for both series one & two, which brings much needed, relevant and relatable live-action entertainment to the youngest audiences in the UK – in both English and Welsh!” said Jackie Edwards, Head of BFI’s Young Audiences Content Fund. "It‘s a fantastic, innovative show which has proven to be a massive hit with both preschoolers and families” said Louise Bucknole, General Manager/Vice President, Kids & Family UK & Ireland, Paramount Global. Series two builds on this success that has creatively engaged a generation of grandparents and grandchildren with its incredibly funny storytelling and takeaway facts
