D+Cineastes venturing into their friendly neighbourhood Early Learning Centre can pick up a DVD called The Magic of Making, written and narrated by Plymouth editor and producer Simon Ashcroft.
But what happens when you’ve watched it from, erm, cover to cover?
Ah well, the good news for kids and simpletons is next month he will begin filming the second season, to be shown on BBC Worldwide before ‘hitting’ the DVD ‘stands’.
Ashcroft is a director of London-based production company Cog On The Box, which produces the Magic of Making short films and possibly boasts the world’s dullest website.
But Ashcroft doesn’t spend all his time making kids’ telly. Oh-ho-no! He also works three days a week as an editor on Ready, Steady, Cook (which we thought had been cancelled years ago), and spends another day a week slumming it at BBC South West, pining for Ainsley Harriott (probably).
The new Magic of Making series is due to be shown on the Beeb in August and will probably be available on DVD in the autumn. Just so you know.
