"NHK [Japan] and Al Jazeera Children's Channel (JCC) are co-producing a new series, called Discover Science, which will teach kids about science through experiments. Production on the 26x14-minute show is being led by NHK Educational Corporation (NED), an NHK affiliate that produces content for NHK’s educational channel. Discover Science has opted not to use CGI or talking heads—the entire series will focus on conducting actual experiments. The co-production deal builds on an existing relationship between NED and JCC, with the two companies exchanging kids' programs since JCC's launch in 2005."
