The series has been filmed so that viewers share in these events and the company hopes that each 11-minute episode will spark conversation between parents and children as they too, prepare to undertake new experiences of their own.
Series Producer Paul McCoy said, “It’s been great to work with CBeebies on another season of My First…”
“We’re committed to giving children a voice and the audience can watch these exciting moments unfold”
“We have been very privileged to work with such a diverse range of children. I can’t thank the families enough for welcoming us into their homes and for everyone else who helped make this series possible”, he added. Commissioned by Michael Towner with Executive Producer Julia Bond for CBeebies.
MCC Media are building on this success with many exciting new projects currently in development. My First…is an engaging live-action series for children under 6, which captures the wonder of a child experiencing new activities and encounters for the very first time. Filmed from a toddler-eye perspective, young viewers will be encouraged to share in these milestones and ‘interact’ with the narrator as the action unfolds.
My First…is a 20-episode series, which records new experiences and encounters from a child’s point of view and shows positively reinforced responses to these events. Each child is followed as they participate in their chosen experience for the first time and the viewer gets to share this within the show As well as being an exciting adventure for young viewers, My First… wants to help remind parents of the enormity of new encounters for a child, and help show how other children have experienced this milestone. The show offers an insight to see how resilient children can be as we observe their responses to each new experience. Each episode is eleven minutes long and narrated by well known CBeebies presenter Gemma Hunt (Swashbuckle).
