Media Products

The 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.

Documentaries: One 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 speaking audiences.

These programmes will be offered to TV broadcasters in the Asia Pacific and beyond. If interested, please contact TVE Asia Pacific


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’).
