CBeebies unveils media pre-school quiz show 'Kerwhizz'

MUMBAI: CBeebies has unveiled Kerwhizz, a multi-platform entertainment format aimed at 4 to 6-year-olds.



Cbeebies controller Michael Carrington says: "Kerwhizz is tremendous fun, looks absolutely amazing and children and their grown-ups will be able to enjoy the game and the podcasts any time they like."



In Kerwhizz, three teams of CGI characters compete to answer questions that will give them add-ons or "Pod-Mods" for their high tech racing machines.



Kerwhizz has been designed with the assistance of teachers and a specialist advisor, to test the teams and the viewer.



Children are drawn into the action at every step of the game, answering questions, making predictions about the race and advising contestants when to use their "pod-mods".



The races can take place in any of 26 different worlds which reflect a range of environments, from the astronomical to the historical. The three teams of two are Kit and Kaboodle, Twist and Snout, and Ninki and Pip.



Firing the questions and commentating on the race is the live action Kerwhizzitor. A live action audience adds to the excitement by cheering on their favourite contestants.



The online game will reflect the show, with brand new questions and specially created races for the users to enjoy. There will also be a radio show which will be podcasted on the site, joining the growing number of increasingly popular CBeebies podcasts available at bbc.co.uk/cbeebies.



It is also the first in-house CBeebies show to be filmed in HD. 26 of the 22-minute programmes have been ordered from CBeebies Production and the show and game will debut on air and online respectively at the start of November.



CBeebies Production head Kay Benbow says, "I am delighted that CBeebies Production has been commissioned to make this stand-out multi-platform property.



"By working together the integrated in-house team have created a show that lives in all the spaces a child does – on TV, on Radio and Online. It is great fun, fills a real gap in the pre-school market and looks fantastic!"



Kerwhizz fans can play as their favourite team on the CBeebies website. Just as in the programme, they will be asked five different questions, earning points for every correct answer to win "Mods" for their racing Pods.



They can then progressively unlock six online raceworlds (including Jungle World and Above the Clouds), in which they can try and beat the other teams.



In addition to the game, children can print out and colour in their favourite characters, listen to the Kerwhizz theme tune and watch clips from the programme.
