Every Kyrgyz child can now join the Magic Journey

By Galina Solodunova

13 November 2006 - A green balloon glides up to the ceiling of the Children?s Recreation Centre ?Seitek? in Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan. As the friendly clown released it, the children and adults present shouted ?Green and round!? Kaniet, 4, sitting in the front row, tried to be first to name the colour and shape of the objects being shown by the clown. This little game was part of a preview of a new animated television series called ?Magic Journey?.

?It is the first series of animated stories to be developed in Kyrgyzstan in the last 20 years,? said Vice-President of the National Kyrgyz Tele/Radio Corporation, Beishinbek Bekeshev, at the launch.
