Live action TV programmes for children are essential for public service media. These programmes often feature relatable characters and situations in real-world settings, promoting important social and educational themes while also being entertaining.

What are the trends and challenges in live action content for kids? During this 90 minutes special session, you will hear about the following case studies:

  • BBC: “The Worst Witch” + another tbc. – Sarah Muller, Senior Head of Children’s Commissioning (BBC)
  • NRK: “Bablo” and “Rykter (Rumours)”  – Joakim Vedeler, Head of Children’s Content Strategy (NRK) and Christoffer V. Ebbesen, Showrunner.
  • Rai: “The Chronicles of Nanaria” – Luca Milano, Director of Rai Kids (Rai)
  • VRPO: “Timmyland” – Juliette van Paridon – Editor in Chief (VPRO)

We will also leave some time to discuss Members' live action strategies and trends. Register now to join us on 9 June!
