It’s got it’s swagger back

Congratulations to former students Matt Katz (OW 1989) and Richie Webb (OW 1988) part of the production team that scooped ‘Best Children’s Programme: Horrible Histories’ at the recent Broadcast Awards 2018.

Commenting about the programme one judge said ”It’s got its swagger back. They’ve taken the format and revitalised it with a real energy

Richie Webb is the main composer behind the hit TV series and Matt Katz producer, engineer and musician. Their impressive list of credits also includes infant favourites ‘Baby jake’ and ‘Teletubbies’, as well as a huge number of audio productions for BBC Radio 4.

To date, 95 episodes of Horrible Histories have been made, and Richie and Matt have written songs for every one, including the theme tune. They’ve also recorded and produced all of them,
in Matt’s own 700‑square‑foot Noisegate Studios, built within an industrial unit in Warwick.
