'The Rubbish World of Dave Spud' wins the Royal Television Society Programme Award for Best Children’s Programme
The show focuses on the no-nonsense, close-knit Spud family and their amazing escapades and around their son Dave, a magnet for disaster, who is a fighter against the odds and an unlikely hero. He knows that no matter how rubbish things get, there is always room for them to get worse – but together with his family, they surely will prevail and be back from their adventures in time for tea.
