Radio Series

Soul Buddyz 1 Radio was a pilot project as there was very little if any radio in South Africa for children of this age ( 8-12 years) at the time of the project's inception.

sb1_radiopic168.jpgRadio partnerships include SABC Educational Radio and the Academy for Educational Development's Change Project in Washington DC who are known for innovative communication work. We also have partnerships with the BBC Learning Zone and the South African non-governmental organisation -- ABC Ulwazi.

The radio consists of 26 thirty minute programmes with: 10 minutes drama with child protagonists, 10 minutes of documentary information inserts for both adults and children and 10 minutes interactive talk (a phone in show hosted by a young person).

Soul Buddyz 1 was developed together with three SABC regional radio stations - Motsweding, Umhlobo Wenene and Thobela FM (include logos). The stations have been involved in training and writing as well as in the production of the series.
