Cbeebies faith and values show starts

by Cara Bentley

The show, called Treasure Champs, has already had one three minute preview episode and will launch another two series on 6th January 2018.

 It's aimed at nursery-aged children and plans to introduce them to "values common to different faiths and cultures such as generosity, empathy and honesty" according to the BBC.

The 'Treasures' are the different values that the two animated characters explore each episode.

In each episode there is a traditional fable or a story from one of the main world religions: Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism.

Episodes will include: Loyalty, Sharing, Creativity, Empathy, Democracy and Self-Respect.

In a statement from the BBC, Kay Benbow, Controller CBeebies, says: "Championing positive, common values has become increasingly important, both in society and education, and we hope our young viewers will find Treasure Champs to be both informative and inspirational.

"At the heart of the series is the idea that we are different but the same. We want to emphasise the positive values that unite us all and hopefully encourage kids to want to be Treasure Champs regardless of their background or beliefs." 

Through songs and children, the show aims to teach children about different beliefs in a fun way.

The first episode, Courage, airs at 17:05 on Saturday 6th January.
