The 2012 British Academy Children's Awards nominees have been announced, and Tree Fu Tom is named in two categories. The programme has been nominated as best Pre-School Animation, and also in the Interactive category.
Tree Fu Tom was launched earlier this year and is currently CBeebies' most watched show of 2012. The animated programme features the voice talents of Sophie Aldred as Tom, a young boy who uses a magic belt to transport himself to the fantastic kingdom of Treetopolis. There, with his best friend Twigs played by David Tennant, he faces adventures and has to turn to his Tree Fu skills to save the day. The moves that Tom uses to conjure up Big World Magic are specially designed to support movement development in young children, particularly those with dyspraxia and other co-ordination disorders. Tree Fu Tom was created by Daniel Bays and produced by CBeebies and FremantleMedia Entertainment. It was animated by Blue Zoo and the interactive content was created by Plug-in Media.
The 2012 Children's BAFTAs are announced on Sunday 25th November at the London Hilton, Park Lane. For full details of all nominees, click here.
