Paul Honey scores new animation from BAFTA-nominated Fettle

Paul Honey

Paul Honey (Old Jack’s Boat, All At Sea) has been invited to collaborate with BAFTA-nominated animation company Fettle Animation on a 5-minute animation for the BBC’s Newsround. 

The animation tells the true story of Ruth, a brave and intelligent young woman who escaped violence in Eritrea to start a new life in the United Kingdom.

She recalls her perilous journey walking across Africa, the conditions she endured to get to Europe and how she finally came to Britain.

Paul also scored the BAFTA-nominated series Children Of The Holocaust, also made by Fettle.

The Newsround animation first broadcast on Wednesday, 6th July on the CBBC Channel. You can watch the full animation here.
