Chapman Entertainment's Roary the Racing Car walked away with the prize for the Best Children's Programme at the recent Royal Television Society North West Awards.

The Hellie's A Winner episode was competing against Chapman stable mate, Fifi and the Flowertots, plus Citizenship & Surveillance for the BBC Learning Zone in the category.

Chapman MD and executive producer, Greg Lynn, and Roary the Racing Car director, Tim Harper, accepted the award.

"We pride ourselves on making first class shows for pre-schoolers and winning Best Children's Programme for Roary is a great honour - especially as he is in such excellent company," said Lynn. "This award is a reflection of the combined talents of a dedicated team of specialists working in the field of children's animation, and I'd particularly like to thank both the production team in London and at the studio, Tim Harper, our director, and Phil Chalk, our senior producer, on a job well done."

The award ceremony was held at the Hilton Deansgate in Manchester, and was attended by over 400 people from the television and creative industries in the North West.
