Aimee and Punky on RTE 1 tonight!

Aimee Richardson, the voice of 'Punky', the central character of my series, is going to be interviewed on the Saturday Night Show on RTE tonight.

Aimee has done a fantastic job and is also an ambassador for Down Syndrome Ireland, who have been behind the idea from the series since I first approached them in 2008/9 after I'd got some Irish Film Board development money.

At that stage, I wanted to make sure I was hitting the right tone with the series and they set up meetings for me with lots of Mums and their children. You have no idea how much research goes into a series like this!!!


  1. And she was fantastic, a great inspiration from and for the world of Down syndrome. And well done you on the series and its success to date. Here's to more of the same. We'll be watching!

  2. Wasn't she!?

    Thanks downsdad. It's hard to believe we've got to this stage. Or that I came up with the idea back in 2007! Always knew it was a neat one though! Fortunately so did Monster Animation and RTE.
