In early September, I had the pleasure of giving a workshop in Bangkok for 16 participants  from independent production companies and from members of the staff at Thai PBS.

My specialty is children's programme – production and international trends.It's good to see that it has been increased capacity for production of own national children's program in Thailand.

The efforts put into the production of children's programmes around the world differ widely.

Children today must relate to global media to a far grater extent than before, but children need to take their own cultural ballast with them in order to be able to understand and take other cultures, values, and religions seriously and accept them.

What we offer children regarding nationally produced programs helps to strengthen their identity and their linguistic and cultural foundation.

The smaller the language and cultural area – the more important this is. The training of local producers is important to make these program as good as possible.

The workshop aims at providing the participants an introduction to children's perception of media, new trends as Transmedia, different age-groups,  as well as a introduction of working methods to make them excellent media-workers with and for children.

I had brought with me the best international programme, the participants had brought with them their own productions – and in addition, we worked with drama structure, documentaries, games – and had drama exercises with improvisation.

We had a full day with screening and discussion of participants' own programme. 

This seems as a successful part of the workshop, in addition to an introduction of the discussion with my comments they had a very with active feedback on each other's programs. It is not so often the independent producers meet and have this kind of discussions – so they thought this was a great opportunity to get known and to learn for the feedback from their colleagues.

The participants was split into 3 groups with the task of drafting three programmes for children:  drama, documentaries and game show – and they showed great enthusiasm in the pitch of these projects – ranging from acting demonstration of sequences – to production via mobile phone of the hole program – with the participants themselves in all the roles – an impressive use of the new technology!

The participants had a variety of background, – and had a rare enthusiasm, commitment – and humor.

It's always nice to come to other countries and cultures and to feel communication in humor – humor brings us together across cultural barriers, and it's good to keep some childishness when you work with children programme.

16 journalists from Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Indonesia, Maldives, Nepal and Sri Lanka attended the five day workshop on “Training of Journalists on Legal awareness in an Era of Media Convergence” from 23 to 27 September 2012 in Male, Maldives, hosted by Maldives Broadcasting Commission.

Ms Noora Ali, Secretary General of the Maldives Broadcasting Commission extended a warm welcome to the participants at the opening of the workshop.

AIBD together with the funding support of IPDC – UNESCO organized this project in order to provide for young journalists with an understanding of their rights and responsibilities, and the practical skills to anticipate and respond to legal challenges in the course of their work.

Overall, this was an active and engaged group where often the questions and comments went beyond what were strictly legal issues to journalism practice and ethics. The case studies from the participating countries ranged from restrictions on reporting on protests and civil conflicts, to access to courtrooms, official information and threats of defamation to contempt of court actions generated lively discussions.

 

A first-of-its-kind workshop, which it is hoped will serve as a pilot to be replicated in other countries, was held on Understanding Links Between Ozone Depletion and Climate Change. Organized jointly by HUM TV, AIBD, UNEP, CBA and Ministry of Climate Change, government of Pakistan, the workshop was held on September 6 and 7, as a timely precursor to World Ozone Day which is celebrated on September 16.
