The hit puppet and animation based show has now secured slots on DR Denmark, YLE Finland, Canal+ Cyfrowy Poland and Al Jazeera Kids in the Middle East.
The four broadcasters have already begun dubbing It’s a Big Big World into their native languages and expect to launch the first 40 x 30 minutes series of the show in their respective territories throughout 2009.
The international success of the PBS kids show is set to continue. Contender Entertainment Group says further dials are in ciscussion and based on the very positive response of the market, more episodes are also in development.
Muriel Thomas, head of International sales and co-production for Contender said: “These sales in four very different markets are proof of the universal appeal of It’s a Big Big World.
"It is a show that has enormous appeal and charm in it’s own right but is also focused on the environment - an issue high on everyone’s agenda - and on helping children to discover the world around them.”
