BBC Filming on 'The A Word' Concludes for the Articulate Kids!

Posted on 10/01/2016

Sixty Articulate students have just finished filming for brand new six part BBC series 'The A Word', which gives an insight into autism in the family setting. The children have been working alongside a fantastic cast including Christopher Eccleston (The Leftovers, Fortitude), Lee Ingleby (Our Zoo) and Morven Christie (Grantchester).

The students from Articulate were aged between 5 and 11 and have been filming since November all over Yorkshire and the Lake District; some of the filming locations were spectacular. The children play a whole range of support artist roles including local villagers and school children.

Poppy Dyson, six, said "it was so cool filming because we got to do lots of drama and everyone was really nice and gave us lots of nice things."

Maizie McDonagh, seven, said "it was strange but really good being in a different school uniform to my own. I liked filming with my Articulate friends"!

The children have had another fantastic experience, and these really are experiences of a lifetime.

Well done to all 60 children involved in this; we can't wait to see it!
