How has COVID-19 impacted children’s media consumption and the content created in response?

In January 2020, we held a joint event with the Children’s Media Foundation: “Are the Kids Alright?” The session looked at how the mainstream media were providing engaging content for our youngest audiences. Then the pandemic changed everything. How did the media industry rise to the challenge? 

RTS London and the CMF now bring you an hour of insights and information, exploring key case studies of content created and delivered by broadcasters, producers, digital providers, and online creators that responded to, or reflected, the COVID-19 crisis, and how it impacted children's TV audiences. As life returns to something that resembles normal, we discover how some of the most brilliant content makers rose to the occasion, what they made, and how they achieved it.

Chair:
Gary Pope, CEO of Kids Industries.

Panel:
Panel to be announced.

Producers: 
Nikki Stearman, CMF, with Execs Carol Owens, RTS, and Greg Childs, CMF.
