We have a real breadth of engaging and informative programming in our Children's catalogue so it's great to see some of our exciting live-action drama and documentary content such as MI High and Deadly 60 licensed by the channel for the first time."

Programming includes original wildlife documentaries such as Deadly 60 and Deadly 360, and the natural history children's series Andy's Wild Adventures. Other shows include Leonardo “ the exploits of young Leonardo Da Vinci and MI High, an adventure comedy about a division of teen spies. Animated comedy shows include Me and My Monsters; a comedy show combining puppets and live action, and In The Night Garden, a televisual representation of a nursery rhyme picture book for preschoolers on Baraem TV.
