Three Arrows/BBC – The Baby Bear and Me podcast

Baby Bear and Me is a ten-episode podcast series for young children that explores the sounds of everyday activities they experience. It features Baby Bear from The Baby Club on Cbeebies TV, and is presented by Giovanna Fletcher and Nigel Clarke, from the show.

The BBC wanted to create something that would provide a rich sensory experience for children during lockdown. Parents and toddlers are encouraged to play along with the sounds, and games, in each episode. The themes include bedtime, bath time, and the kitchen; and settings including nature, journeys and friends.

The series was produced and recorded remotely, due to the Covid restrictions, in 2020. It was released at the beginning of 2021 on CBeebies Radio and BBC Sounds. Suzi worked as the producer on the series, alongside Emma Hyman from Tinyhouse Productions, and the team at Three Arrows Media. Micky Curling from Mix Broadcast recorded and edited the episodes.

“Suzi was a delight to work with on our Baby Bear and Me podcast. She was creative, understood the audience’s needs and had a good rapport with the presenters; she also adapted well to Covid restrictions, worked efficiently and delivered on time. And best of all, she produced a unique and wonderful series that we’re all really proud of.”
