BBC defends children's show in race row

Friday 10:49 GMT

A group representing British East Asians in the film and TV industry has criticised it for the lack of East Asian writers working on the show.

It has been signed by more than 100 British East Asians in the industry, and draws attention to how few writers of East Asian origin there are across the 10 commissioned episodes. "It is unacceptable that a television series about the day-to-day lives of a British East Asian family will not be fully authored by British East Asian writers," the letter reads.
