EVEN BADDIES WEAR HELMETS

A podcast about children's TV and the brilliant people who make it happen. 

ABOUT

WHAT'S THIS ABOUT THEN?

Even Baddies Wear Helmets is a podcast all about the craft of making children’s television, in conversation with the grown-ups who make it happen. Throughout the series, host Billie Collins chats to the sector’s top producers, writers, directors, and actors about everything from adapting children’s books to voiceover for animation. Kids’ telly is home to some of the most forward thinking, innovative and exciting content – and we’re here to find out how it’s made.

WHAT DOES THE TITLE MEAN?

The title ‘Even Baddies Wear Helmets’ comes from what (we were once told!) is a list of rules for writing preschool shows. Basically, because you don’t want kids copying dangerous behaviour, no matter how bad your baddie is, they will always wear a cycle helmet when they take to the roads. For us, it sums up all the best things about kids’ TV – it’s humour, playfulness, and lack of cynicism. (It also sounds cooler than ‘The Kids’ TV Podcast.’)
