Wise Up is a British factual children's television programme broadcast for nine series on Sunday mornings[1] between 1995 and 2000 on Channel 4 (UK) and T4. It was produced by Carlton Productions, and was directed by Martin Wallace. As well as reports, there were also regular features such as a feature called Knowing Me, Knowing You.[2] It was similar to a BBC programme called Ipso Facto.[3][4]

In December 1999 there was an hour-long special called Wise Up: Teenagers On The Line[5] in which a 15-year-old girl traveled from London to Paris and Bamako, Mali to explore teenage life in different countries each on the Greenwich Meridian Line.

Production[edit]

The programme led to the formation of Wised Up Productions involving Mick Robertson and Simon Morris.[6] Morris did not contribute to Wise Up, though he did contribute to the catalogue of programmes produced by Wised Up Productions.[7]

Reception[edit]

The programme was nominated for a BAFTA in 1996,[8] a Children's BAFTA in 2000.[9]
