Most Outstanding Children’s Program

At the recent Logie Awards the ABC series ‘My Place’ won Most Outstanding Children’s Program. Adapted from the award-winning children's book of the same name, comes a story of the children who live in the very same spot in Australia over 120 years from 1888 to 2008.

Mischief and adventure abound in My Place, with all 13 children having a talent for some kind of trouble. Each hiding up the very same fig tree, each with a story to tell.
My Place provides an engaging living history series for children, and aims to show that everyone is part of history, and that every place has a story. 
My Place - Volume One is available in store now.  In this volume, meet Laura who’s struggling to own up to her actions. It’s 2008 and the Prime Minister is trying to do the same with her mob. Mohammed (1998) is into cricket. When he can’t join the boys’ team he ends up on the girls’ side – and they’re a force to be reckoned with. In 1988 Lily is eagerly awaiting a visit from her cousin. But the trophy cousin from Vietnam ends up causing a lot of chaos. In the 1970s it’s Mike – he knows about Australian muscle cars from 1968-1978 but everything else is much harder to grasp. In 1968, Sofia’s brother is leaving for the Vietnam War; she’s trying to get rid of his Anglo girlfriend before he leaves. In 1958 Michael wants to be Australian not Greek, but more importantly…he wants a TV so he can watch Robin Hood.
