The Making of Biscuit Land

I can’t quite believe it’s actually happened. Yesterday the vision and skills of many, many people came together to culminate in our Broadcast From Biscuit Land on BBC4.

We’ve been on an incredible journey, brilliantly supported by our friends from Battersea Arts Centre and the BBC. If you weren’t able to join us in Biscuit Land last night you can catch up with the whole evening on iPlayer now.

For the last month the Touretteshero team’s been on site at Television Centre, working in the old drama block and props store to bring Biscuit Land to life.

There have been loads of incredible moments along the way, ranging from our very first visit to Television Centre back in May to the moment when the cameras stopped rolling last night. We captured many of these in photos, but we’ve kept them under wraps until now because we didn’t want to spoil the surprise. So now, one day on, feels like a good time to share these with you:

If you’re new to Touretteshero, have a good look round. There’s my blog, our gallery of tic-inspired art, the tics themselves and our FAQ’s for anyone curious about Tourettes. In our shop you can buy the t-shirts Chopin and I were wearing in the show, and lots of other tic-inspired products. All the proceeds help us put on events for children and young people with Tourettes. We also take donations!

To everyone who’s shared this amazing adventure with us, thank you.
