JoJo & Gran Gran special wins Royal Television Society North West Award

We’re celebrating the news that the JoJo & Gran Gran special It’s Time to Visit Saint Lucia has won the North West regional Royal Television Society (RTS) Award for Best Pre-School Children’s Programme.

The ground-breaking animated pre-school series JoJo & Gran Gran is produced for CBeebies by BBC Studios Kids & Family Productions in Salford, in association with our team at A Productions and inspired by characters created by Laura Henry-Allain MBE.

Showcasing the special relationship between grandparent and child, the series reflects kids’ lives and inspires real-world discovery and play.

In the winning special episode, the beautiful Caribbean Island of Saint Lucia extends a warm Creole welcome to JoJo, Gran Gran, Mummy, Daddy and Panda.

Since its debut in 2020, this heart-warming series has picked up several major gongs including a Broadcast Award, a Kidscreen Award and a BAFTA.

Katherine McQueen, our joint managing director at A Productions said: “Having recently celebrated the completion of series 2 and 3 of JoJo and Gran Gran, this award is a tribute to the fantastic team both here and at the BBC who’ve worked so hard to bring this wonderful series to our screens. Well done everyone!”
