‘Nick Cope’s Popcast’, is a mixed media childrens entertainment show commissioned by BBC.
Popcast is a TV series fronted by accomplished singer/songwriter Nick Cope, where each episode sees Nick, and his friendly dog Norman the Whippet, looking for ideas for a new ‘Popcast’ song as his quirky caravan is transported to a different location. Taking inspiration from his new surroundings, and with the help of ‘The Popcasters’, a team of young children who give Nick ideas and themes to sing about, Nick sits down to write an unforgettable song which is then broadcast to the nation in that episode.
There’s an easy and homely charm to the show which combines the old fashioned and simple storytelling elements with songs like ‘Baby’s Done a Poo’, ‘I’m a Little Lizard’ and ‘A Round of Applause for the Dinosaurs’ that once you’ve heard you just can’t get out of your head.
Popcast is a collaboration between Complete Control, Nick Cope and Terrific Television to make a charming, original, witty yet complex mixed media TV series involving music, animation, children and animals!
Complete Control has experience in creating high quality animation for broadcast with our children’s series Nick Copes Popcast. This is a charming mixed media series of blending 2d animation and Live Action footage together into a timeless classic childrens show.
We have currently delivered 35 episodes of Popcast to CBeebies and by 2023 will have delivered 55 episodes – over 6 hours of TV.
Quote from a lovely mum … “I had to send an email to tell you how you have created the most magical programme, which as a family of five, we all completely love! It’s really tricky to find something on TV that spans all of their ages, but Nick Cope’s Popcast has all three of my children singing along and the combination of Nick’s gentle presenting style, the catchy and meaningful songs, the incredible graphics, Norman… It’s all so brilliant and makes our mornings start on the very best note. It’s a real gem and I just wanted to pass on our thanks for creating something so special and enjoyable.”
