The new series, made by BBC Children’s In House Productions, is based on the Tracy Beaker books by beloved children’s author Dame Jacqueline Wilson.
In the podcast series Tracy Beaker continues to be loud, fiery – and still somehow always manages to find herself in trouble. Tracy is played by Macy-Blossom Tench, who makes her acting debut in the podcast.
Each episode follows the adventures of Tracy and her friends, as well as the occasional enemy along the way. Having grown up in care, Tracy hates soppy fairy stories but secretly longs for her own happily ever after. Through the trials and tribulations, will Tracy find a foster family of her own?
The series offers a fresh new audio adaptation for existing fans of the books and TV series as well as the chance for young audiences to listen in to and be enthralled by Tracy’s world, through wonderful audio storytelling for the first time.
Helen Bullough, Head of Children’s In House Production, says: “Whether listeners are discovering Tracy Beaker for the first time or revisiting a childhood classic, her story is timeless. Feisty but with a heart of gold, we hope audiences enjoy Tracy’s adventures and the havoc she causes along the way!”
Five episodes will land on BBC Sounds this Saturday 11th April with more to come in future weeks. The Tracy Beaker Podcast is available on BBC Sounds.
