Thanks to Kim for the heads up on this. CBeebies are looking for half hour television scripts. You have to get them in by July 1st. The shortlisted scripts get mentored and £300 development fee. Try not to spend it all at once. And there doesn’t seem to be anything concrete about an actual television commission. But if you do get one, for goodness sake, check the contract, and hang onto the copyright. Sorry – I’ve suddenly gone all sarcastic. It’s just that the BBC are always saying how brilliant children’s telly and radio is, and how it really should be nurtured while slashing their budgets at the same time.
No – ignore me. Write a brilliant script and send it to CBeebies. Just hang onto the copyright.
