BBC Worldwide Africas head of programming, Kully Kaur-Baines says: The popularity
of the CBeebies channel (DStv channel 306) and Go Jetters in South Africa and across
the continent has made this a natural addition, expanding on the show and offering
families the opportunity to access it wherever they go. Go Jetters aims to teach little
ones about world geography and the natural wonders of the world in an entertaining
way, and with the new website and apps available, they can learn even more.
Go Jetters apps are also available for download on Apple and Android, where
little ones can enjoy hours of fun with Go Jetters Colouring and Go
Jetters: Fix that Glitch.
Go Jetters is a BBC Worldwide and CBeebies co-commission that follows the
adventures of four plucky heroes, Xuli, Kyan, Lars and Foz, as they travel the world
with their teacher, mentor and friend, Ubercorn, a funky disco-grooving unicorn. A
comedy, action adventure for 4 to 6 year olds, Go Jetters combines music,
gadgets and disco-dancing to introduce the audience to geography and culture. Filled
with comedy, teamwork, awesome sights, and funky facts, each episode offers older
pre-schoolers a fun-filled and action packed exploration of their wider world.
