Balamory is a BBC Children's department series with human characters who interact with each other and the viewer. Whilst the characters are extrovert and colourful, there is a strong sense of reality in everything they do which is backed up by the use of real children and real events.
A new story is told every day and reaches its conclusion over the programme's 20-minute duration. Within the narrative are songs to entertain and sing along with, inspirational activities with makes and games and informative events.
Filmed on a real island location (Mull), Balamory gives children a strong sense of place. They are able to learn where everyone lives and have the island's town mapped out in their head.
Won BAFTA Scotland Award for Best Children’s Programme.
