British producer Brian Cosgrove is set to be honoured for his contribution to kids' Tv at the upcoming British Academy Children's Awards.
Veteran actor David Jason will hand animator Cosgrove the Special Award in recognition of his work on shows for youngsters, which have included classic series The Wind In The Willows and Danger Mouse.
Speaking of his pride at landing the prize, Cosgrove says, "After 40 years of making children's programmes, it is an honour and a privilege to be receiving this Special Award... On hearing I would receive the Award I was thrilled! I've been lucky in many ways, particularly that I've spent my whole career doing what I would have chosen to do as a hobby."
Cosgrove will receive the honour at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) prizegiving in London on Sunday (25Nov12).
