Adapted for CBBC by BAFTA-award winning screenwriter Guy Burt, Joe All Alone is the story of thirteen year old Joe Holt, left behind when his mum and unsavoury boyfriend take a sudden week-long holiday. With just £10 for the electric meter and a fridge half-full of leftovers, Joe stays up all night (and regrets it), counts off the days... and discovers a bag full of cash hidden in the flat. That’s only the start of Joe’s troubles - particularly when the adults fail to return after the week’s over. Joe All Alone is produced by Zodiak Kids.
The screening of episodes 1 and 2 will be followed by a Q& A with author Joanna Nadin, director Beryl Richards and cast members Daniel Frogson and Liani Samuel.
Programmed as part of the Female Firsts Open Weekend at BAFTA. Joe All Alone has a strong female crew including producer Nadine Marsh-Edwards, director Beryl Richards, Director of Photography Oona Menges and Editor Mary Finlay.
