BeIN to introduce edutainment programmes for children this Ramadan through its channel
beIN Media Group, the global sports and entertainment broadcaster, has unveiled its set of educational and entertainment programmes for children during the holy month of Ramadan on its Jeem TV and Baraem channel.
The line-up includes a series of diverse programmes and cultural and historical shows that will be broadcast around the clock to suit the ages and tastes of all viewers. It is a mix of cultural drama that entrenches human and Islamic values and a variety of international animations that strengthen children’s attachment to their Arab and Islamic identity.
Tijan Annour, the international Q’uran recitation competition sponsored by the General Administration of Endowments at the Ministry of Endowments and Islamic Affairs, will return to Jeem TV this year during the holy month. Now in its ninth edition, the competition will feature reciters from various countries.
The Young Muezzin competition is also held on the sidelines of Tijan Annour. The jury consists of a group of recitation scholars known for their knowledge and extensive experience as judges in international Q’uran recitation competitions.
Ramadan programmes on Jeem TV this year also include ‘Winners’, which will be broadcast live daily at 4pm Mecca time. Host Marwa Khamis presents a series of competitions and games, the winners of which receive valuable prizes. A weekly question is also asked on social media platforms where followers will have to name the chapter of the Q’uran from which a given verse is taken and the number of the verse.
Jeem TV programming also includes ‘The Journey’, a 3-D graphic animation series suitable for all family members in general and children in particular. The series links reality and fiction in terms of space and time to teach ethics through Hadith explained in a simple and useful way. The program is broadcast daily during the month of Ramadan at 5pm Mecca time.
The third season of ‘ Habib Allah’, which cites the most important events in the Prophet Mohammad’s (PBUH) journey and how his message constituted an important transformation in human history, will also be aired during Ramadan. Presented in an appealing style, the series attracts children and teaches them the unique characteristics of Prophet Mohammad. It will be presented daily at 5.45pm Mecca time.
Jeem TV also announced a new public competition for television reporting under the name ‘Jeem Correspondents’. It gives every child the opportunity to become a distinguished reporter by covering events and activities in his or her country, reporting on his or her own artistic and creative skills, or introducing charity Iftar tables and popular dishes from his or her country, speaking in standard Arabic.
