Katie Morag Series I & II

Move On Up for CBeebies

Casting Director

Multi award winning Katie Morag is set against a backdrop of the remote and beautiful Hebridean Islands, on the fictional Isle of Struay. The stories celebrate the intrinsic sense of community, the preciousness of the environment and the universal tensions and joys of family life. The production team compassionately reproduced the charm and authenticity of Mairi Hedderwick’s books by bringing to life Katie Morag’s beloved island in a series which appeals to children and adults everywhere. So far the series has won multiple awards including 4 Bafta’s, Best Children’s programme at 2014 Freesat TV Awards, Royal Television Society Scotland Children’s Award and Best New Kids Series at the 2015 Kidscreen Awards in Miami. The wonderful Cherry Campbell has been the youngest performer ever to win a BAFTA!
