Welcome to a world of info for kids! FYI: For Your Info is an award-winning weekly news magazine show. Broadcast 52 weeks a year, FYI investigates the big issues young people need info on. The show not only puts children in the know but also gives them a platform on which they can be heard. With reports from across the globe, explainers, debates, Fake News or Fact alerts and in-depth reporting, we also get big name interviews – from the Prime Minister and other world leaders to pop and film stars.
This week: FYI episode 107
Are we gaming too much in lockdown? Also, we catch up on the latest facts about the coronavirus vaccines, and our reporter is in the USA, as the country gets a new president and new hopes for the future.
Kidversation is a series of peer-to-peer short form films based on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Our young presenters meet the children who are fighting for their child rights around the world, from the violent favelas of Brazil and the remote villages of Ghana to the refugees making a bid for a better life. Closer to home they meet young green campaigners and disabled children fighting for equal treatment.
The resources supporting an episode develop understanding of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. The steps provided explore the right that each episode focuses on, and give links to more First News reports on this issue. Children will become familiar with their rights and evaluate whether these rights are being met for children across the globe. We will continue to add resources for each episode.
