Putting our perceived understanding of children, and the concept of kids as commissioners, to the test. A group of 8yr old Mini-Dragons will have 3 new ideas pitched to them, and – facilitated by the BBC Children’s Stepping Out team – we’ll hear their thoughts and feedback. Will their comments match what the panel predicts the children would think about the ideas?

The panel will also offer their experience and advice about how children have meaningfully impacted the content commissioning process.

Including Cheryl Taylor (Controller, CBBC) who commissioned ‘Blue Peter: You Decide’, allowing the audience to choose Lindsay Russell as the show’s 36th presenter.
