From 17 to 21 March 2014, I had the pleasure of chairing an in-country workshop on children’s TV programmes organised in Fiji by AIBD and supported by NRK for 9 participants of Fiji Broadcasting Corporation (FBC). FBC TV is rather new - only 2 years old and with relatively small - but very enthusiastic staff.
