The Making of The Secret Life of 4, 5 and 6 Year Olds... with Teresa Watkins
The making of... is a strand of masterclasses that goes behind the scenes of some of Britain’s most popular and critically acclaimed tv series. Key production personnel will discuss the mechanics of making the series plus some of the challenges they had to face along the way. Time will be allowed for audience questions, so you will get to ask the makers of some of your favourite programmes exactly how they did it.
