Hit social experiment Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds, produced by CPL Productions for Channel 4 in the UK, has won Best Original Programme at the 2018 Broadcast Awards.

Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds is a revolutionary social experiment that attempts to dramatically improve the health and well-being of elderly people in retirement communities, by bringing them together with a group of four-year-old pre-school children. The program was a huge ratings hit for Channel 4 in the UK, and returned in December for a Christmas special.

The Broadcast Awards 2018 were announced at a ceremony at London’s Grosvenor Hotel on February 7.

The international format of Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds has been sold by Red Arrow Studios International to a raft of territories including  France, Spain, the Netherlands, Sweden and Australia.
