    This is HUGE for any person from the UK. Bigger than a knighthood!

    I’m not sure if non-Brits will get the full impact, but Gold Blue Peter badges very rarely get given out, well he got a knighthood from the Queen first! Even the normal ones are pretty rare.

    For most Brits Blue Peter is a big part of their childhood. I don’t know if America has a direct comparison. It’s a bit of a cultural institution.

    The name of that award sounds quite odd.
