Murdoch Mysteries has been renewed for an 11th season. New episodes air on 13th Street first and later on 7TWO.
From 3 April 2017 at 7:00AM
Get Arty is a new project based children’s TV Art show that aims to encourage kids to get arty, use their imaginations to make and create.
All 12 presenters are accomplished artists with skills in many artistic genres. The only rule - their Get Arty project’s must be awesome! The hero shot must inspired kids to get involved.
The Get Arty brand represents imagination, creativity, fun, expression, inspiration, aspiration and inventiveness.
This must be Seven’s first children’s show in many years?
They have a few children’s shows still running on 7Two.
Aren’t they repeats? I am talking about first children’s show commissioned or financed by Seven in many years.
Is the Simon Reeve-presented It’s Academic still in production? If so, there’s at least one local children’s program on the Seven Network which still does new episodes.
According to their catch-up site, yes. They are currently airing Season 18 episodes on 7TWO.
I could be mistaken, but I’m sure I remember reading somewhere that the series finished up in its 20th Season late last year.
