progress of our eight chosen families in the four countries
-- India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Thailand -- will
be documented every month, and disseminated through
several media products and platforms.
Monthly Video Reports:
From February to December 2005, a 5-minute video report
will be produced on each child/family every month. This
means 8 such reports every month, for 11 months. Each
month’s reports will be released by the middle
of the following month. These will be in English, to
international broadcast standards.
or more full length documentaries will be produced to
mark first anniversary of disaster in Dec 2005. Duration
and other specifics are yet to be decided, but they
will draw from the visual archive built up by our four
teams over 11 months. These too will be in English,
to international broadcast standards.
Local language versions:
Some or all TV productions will be versioned into key
Asian languages to make them more accessible to non-English
These programmes will be offered to
TV broadcasters in the Asia Pacific and beyond. If interested,
please contact TVE
Dedicated website: This
website is exclusively for the Children of Tsunami communications
initiative, and provides a range of information, analysis,
still images, video online, and interactive features.
The website will later develop local language components.
Monthly video reports, as well as
end of the year documentaries (in English and other
Asian languages) will also be available on VHS video
tape (PAL) and on DVD (encoded in region ‘0’).
