Two new dramas for BBC Alba
MG ALBA has been auditioning for two new dramas aimed at children and young people.
Solus Productions held auditions in Skye, Benbecula, Glasgow and Stornoway last week for two young male actors to take part in a drama- documentary series Small Hands 2, produced by LOOKSFilms. The series will feature stories based on letters and diaries from the Second World War, interlaced with documentary and archive for transmission on BBC ALBA in 2018/19.
Sorbier Productions has also been busy auditioning for a lead young female actor and young male supporting lead actor for a children’s drama which is part of an international project operated through the European Broadcasting Union.
The Gaelic film will be seen across Europe and beyond and in exchange children’s films from across Europe will be available for transmission on BBC ALBA in 2018. Margaret Cameron of BBC ALBA said: ‘To have two short drama productions with opportunities for young Gaelic actors is a fantastic piece of news.
