One of Ireland's most popular kids shows to begin series two in the UK

Igam Ogam is due to start broadcasting its second series on Channel 5 in the UK this September.

THE IRISH-MADE pre-school animation Igam Ogam is due to start broadcasting its second series on Channel 5 in the UK this September.

The Connemara-based animation company Telegael announced the creation of 40 new jobs to complete work on series two in April.

Ruth Jones, of Gavin and Stacey fame, returns to narrate the kids show about an energetic cave girl, Igam Ogam, and her prehistoric pals, Roly the monkey, Birdie the know-it-all pterodactyl, Doggie the lickisaurus, Triple Tog the sabre-toothed tiger and Big Daddy the T-Rex.

According to the Broadcaster Audience Research Board in the UK, the Irish-made show is the most popular amongst children aged four to nine, claiming a 15 per cent share of their viewing.

Here are some behind the scene images of the upcoming series from the Connemara-based studio Beochan:
