The Mediae Company commented on Promoting Local Nutrition Solutions

This is really useful. I think we need to have a conversation when we know we are going into production and fine-tune key information points to be included in programmes. Both Shamba Shape Up and Makutano Junction are broadcast in Uganda as well as Kenya, so the key information will be communicated in both countries.

The Mediae Company commented on How we can Ensure Children Thrive using the Media

Sorry - perhaps we haven't made this clear enough. In the beginning we were hoping to do both: 1. programmes for children and 2. programmes for adults. However, now that we have a better idea of the possible budget, we have had to be pragmatic and have decided to go with our drama series, Makutano Junction (which is aimed at family viewing) and Shamba Shape Up (which is aimed at adult, farming populations in Kenya). So the focus will be on helping parents and carers of the under-fives ensuring that their children thrive; both through improved nutrition and feeding and health care, as well as playing with children to develop social, cognitive and overall development of their under fives. In answer to your second question, we have researched quite thoroughly Sesame Workshop and the South African version and this formed the basis for our children's tv show, Knowzone (which is aimed at older children). Magic Carpet sounds really interesting and please tell us of other programmes that will help us.
