Mike Stock was honoured to receive from the BBC a Blue Peter Gold Badge in 2004. Mike spent several days assisting Matt Baker in his challenge to write, record and produce a Christmas song to be performed by the band Phixx. The show tracked the creation and recording of the song "Father Christmas". The programme, which included a performance by Phixx, was initially boradcast on CBBC Channel on 14th December 2004, and was also aired on CBBC One.
There is something special about a Blue Peter Badge, but receiving one of the few gold ones awarded is extra-special. Mike is privileged to be in the company of fellow recipients that include David Beckham, JK Rowling, Kelly Holmes, David Attenborough, Michael Owen, Nick Park, Jonny Wilkinson, Quentin Blake and the Queen.
