Here’s a cracking idea! Aardman Animations, the makers of the Oscar-winning animation series Wallace and Gromit, have opened their first animation academy, hoping to train the next generation of world-class animators.

Nothing unusual so far, except this academy is in a South African township – a place where any opportunities to receive world-class training are thin on the ground.

The BBC’s reporter in Johannesburg, Jonah Fisher, visited the school and joins us to tell us more about it.
