Mikael talks about how he approaches making TV for kids and why there’s more to a 10-minute animation than you might imagine.

Educational experts and child development professionals, along with Mark Rylance, have made Bing a cultural and commercial success, and Mikael gives a fascinating insight into how the project came about and why he’s so proud of it. 

Also in this episode, Christian looks at Andrew Bailey’s recent appearance in front of MPs; problems with the government’s Future Fund; and job losses at Rolls Royce.
