Made In Manchester produce series for CBeebies Radio: CBeebies Radio has awarded production rights for a series teaching the phonic alphabet to Made in Manchester.
The 26-part series, known as ‘Sounds Like This’, explores speech sounds of letters through song and story. It is the creation of Robert Rigby, who was written television scripts for Byker Grove and Thomas the Tank Engine. He will be presenting the series with Amy Enticknap.
Rigby said of the production: “I hugely enjoyed creating and performing Sounds Like This. I hope the listeners to CBeebies Radio have as much fun listening to the songs and stories as Amy and I did when recording them.”
The Made In Manchester creative director, Ashley Byrne, said: “We’re delighted to get this commission and to be able to work with the very talented Robert Rigby. He’s a great storyteller, and has not only written the episodes and composed the music and songs, but performs them as well. It’s a series which will really help young children get to grips with the sounds of the alphabet.”
The first programme in the series will become available today on the CBeebies website.
His experience in editing includes work on behalf of the European Commission, the Financial Conduct Authority, and numerous county councils. He has worked extensively for Plain Language Commission.
