Indigenous personalities including Jessica Mauboy, Deborah Mailman, Sean Choolburra, Jimmy Little, Casey Donovan, Deborah Cheetham, Chris Sarra and David Page will appear in Yarramundi Kids, a new 13 part kids series from Indigenous broadcaster NITV.
It will seek to educate children about the importance of family and friends, eating healthy food and caring for the environment by incorporating avatars, puppets, location stories, animation and Indigenous language segments. The show will feature ‘Yarramundi Kids Puppets’ Nikita, Danny, Max, Lilli Pilli and Baby Ben.
Based on a stage show, the series is the brainchild of Master Puppeteer Chris Burke, who has worked with children and families for over 30 years as Teacher, Counsellor, Community Educator, Puppeteer, Script Writer and Director.
An exciting collaboration between NITV and Indigenous media company Gracie Productions, Yarramundi Kids is a feel-good 13 part series for all Australian children and their families.
It premieres weekdays at 7.00am and 11.00am EST from 15 February on NITV.
NITV is broadcast nationally to metropolitan and regional areas, as well as via Foxtel, Austar and Optus.
