How has Covid impacted on children’s media consumption and the content created in response?

In January 2020 CMF held a joint event with RTS London – “Are the Kids Alright?” – looking at how the mainstream media were providing engaging content for our youngest audiences. Then the pandemic changed everything.

How did media rise to the challenge? And how does that play into the debate about what public service media means and how it can respond to young people’s needs?

RTS London and the CMF bring you an hour of insights and information, exploring key case studies of content created and delivered by broadcasters, producers, digital providers and online makers that responded to or reflected the Covid-19 crisis and how it impacted on children. As life returns to something like normal, discover how some of the most brilliant content makers rose to the occasion, what they made and how they achieved it.
