It was a fantastic experience working on Charlie & Lola, a show which has been a huge favourite with kids and parents alike for the last ten years. A lot of love went into all aspects of making Charlie & Lola and the music was very much a part of that, with unique musical themes given to every single episode. Despite having been out of production for many years, it continues to be broadcast and enjoyed on a daily basis all around the world.
I shared scoring duties with the fantastic John Greswell (of MPM) and in 2007 we were very proud to win the Royal Television Society award for Best Original Score for our work on the second series of the show. This award had never gone to a children’s show before, so was a real surprise for us. The jury had these kind words to say about our music: “Totally new, inspired, varied, incredible and a minor miracle!”
