The cats are back in the cake: The BBC’s The Cat Show
Posted On July 3, 2021
It has been a decade since the BBC began airing The Cat, the award-winning British TV series that launched a decade of cultural history.
The programme has been watched by more than 1 billion people across the globe.
In the process, it changed the face of the world, and inspired generations of children to love animals, including a cat named Cat.
But, what if you were to ask an adult to imagine that their child had met a cat and it was them who introduced the cat to the world?
What if you could actually create a cat with a personality that would be familiar to them, and a story that would make them feel like they had actually met a Cat?
In this week’s episode of the podcast The Catcast, host and BBC presenter James Goss explores this concept in depth.
The series follows a trio of youngsters who go on a journey to meet a cat.
The trio is the story of the Cat and his adventures, as well as the tale of what happens when a cat becomes a hero.
The show has been an amazing success and a massive hit across the world.
In addition to the show, The Cat has been adapted for stage and screen, and is regularly on the BBC’s hit show The Grand Tour.

The Cat is also featured on the cover of this week, in a special edition of the BBC Two documentary series, The Curious Case of the Lost Cat.
In this episode, the show’s creator, James Gollop, and his wife, Rebecca, delve into why the series has remained so popular despite being such a long-running BBC series, and how they came up with the idea for the Cat in the first place.
The cats in The Cat are the result of decades of careful research and development.
And they are still evolving.
James explains: ‘The Cats are the product of a long process of carefully-planned research, which has taken place over many years.
There have been hundreds of cat videos, cat books, cat toys, and thousands of cat photos.
It’s all been meticulously researched.’
We’ve had to find out a lot of things about cats to figure out how to write the story.
There are hundreds of books on the topic.
There’s a whole collection of cat magazines that has a whole section on the subject, with all kinds of photos, pictures, cat-related facts and information.’
The cat is a very specific cat.
It has a unique personality, a unique story, and the ability to transform into a very beautiful, charming, and very cute cat.’
