Ewan Vinnicombe is editor of Blue Peter. A lifelong fan of the show - and a proud recipient of one of its sought-after badges when he was just six years old - he started with the BBC aged 21 as a “tea boy for the Chuckle Brothers,” before moving on to entertainment development. He later became head of presentation, producing shows such as 'CBeebies Bedtime Stories' and the live links between programmes featuring children's favourite Hacker T Dog. In this in-depth interview, he takes us behind the scenes of the iconic show, pays homage to past presenters, reveals the recruitment process behind the on-screen current line-up – and discusses last year’s record-breaking 60th anniversary celebrations.
