Postcards From Buster: New Adventures in India (VIDEO)NEWS | Nirasha Jaganath | March 29, 2012 at 11:21 am
I honestly feel very fortunate to live not too far away from PBS station office and being a natural fan I seriously could visit everyday. There is something about being there that makes the geek in me feel proud that Boston is home to such a wonderful treasure. This may also be why I am also proud to be a PBS Kids VIP ambassador.
Recently, well not too recently to be honest – let’s just say the calendar is kind of packed, I went in to the meet the lovely folks at PBS to talk about Buster. Buster, if you don’t know, is a kid’s show that was a spin-off from the popular, and equally lovable, show Arthur on PBS Kids. Postcards From Buster has visited several cities in USA and now has been exploring other countries too.
I spoke to Carol Greenwald, executive producer and producer Ann Kim, who actually went to India for the episode “Finding Family in Chennai”. I really love that the blog complements the episode with several online activities like make chevda (a snack from India)
