Things are moving along nicely with my comedy animation series  "Listen To Bapou" which has recently gone into production with Banter Hawk TV. This online show is based around the character of my obnoxiously traditional Greek-Cypriot Granddad and explores some of the frustrations the older members of society have about the modern world. 

The character of Bapou will be voiced by Darren Altman, most recently known for his appearance on Britain's Got Talen...
