What is Planet Child about?
Comprised of scientific and social experiments, Planet Child will develop our understanding of child development.
However it will specifically hone in on radically different cultures and ask how, and in what ways, these cultures affect the development of children.
The episodes will follow the lives of six-year-old Michi from Japan, seven-year-old Uuakhuike, from the Himba tribe in Namibia and how their lives differ from young British kids.
Who are the presenters of Planet Child?
The show will be led by the doctors (and identical twins!) Christoffer and Alexander van Tulleken.
Chris and Xand are no strangers to the television world and have previously co-presented shows such as CBBC’s Operation Ouch!.
But they also follow their own paths, as Chris has worked on the celebrated BBC Two show Trust Me, I’m A Doctor and Xand on Channel 4’s How To Lose Weight Well.
