Featured campaigns and backgrounding documents » Save Kids TV

Commercial broadcasters are looking to have children’s content obligations abolished.

We want Australian stories on Australian Screens

We want Australian children dreaming Australian dreams

We need to save children’s content and we need your help.

Australia’s children’s television industry is made up of dozens of successful and internationally-renowned small to medium sized production businesses. These businesses create award-winning live-action and animated programs that Australian children and parents enjoy and are also exported around the world.

These businesses employ thousands of Australian cast and crew and generate economic activity for related industries. 

These businesses make programs for the ABC, commercial and subscription television and increasingly, subscription video on demand services (e.g. Netflix).

The campaign asks people to visit the campaign website and action by writing to their local parliamentarians at http://www.savechildrenscontent.org/

Dual International Emmy-award winning Queensland-based production company, Ludo Studio
has joined the campaign to #savekidsTV by creating a short film. The film is drawn on the format for Doodles (winner, International Emmy Kids Award 2017) and features drawings by Annabel (aged 9 from Brisbane), Chloe (aged 7 from Brisbane) and Will (aged 11 from Melbourne). It was produced by Meg O’Connell, animated and directed by Benjamin Zaugg and the music composed by Joff Bush.
