    Hello, thanks for your feedback. We believe the quizzes we have each episode are pretty much the same thing! Sometimes the presenter will also add a bit more info about the answer too. On our ABC3 shows we also have a “did you know” segment most times.
    Thanks for watching!

    It seems the scenes feature wasn’t compatible with many schools (being able to select where in the episode you wanted to watch) so we have removed it. The episode should now play more reliably. Please let me know if it still isn’t working.

  5. It would be great to see some awareness created on Joseph Kony and the world wide campaign for 2012 in a BTN story.

    There is a campaign to bring down one of the biggest international criminals in 2012 and all that is needed to accomplish it is awareness. A BTN story would help explain this situation to kids as it has started popping up on social media and news.

  6. YOu used to have a link to a video on how BTN is put together on the BTN homepage. Can you put it back up?

    The behind the scenes at BTN was a useful teaching tool to break down video production techniques. Can you put this link back on the site?

    can we have a focus on ANZAC Day for the ESL students who watch the show, please ? Learning about significant Australian days is an important part of our learning programmes.

  8. Inclued what you can do to help the problem

    say what you can do to help the problem because many students have trouble finding a soloution to the topic when they are doing a project.

  9. please maintain the topics section which is a great resource for themes at school

    Guests to BTN were able to access 5-6 programs covering a similar topic, eg. natural disasters. this was a very useful resource which I used regularly.

    We’ve brought the quizzes back finally. We also now have an option to list quizzes made by students! If you have a student that is just mad about some topic – get them to build a quiz for Australia!Expected completion of the new version of the Quiz page is third term.

  11. put up broadcast times on the site

    Is it possible to put all broadcast times somewhere where they are easy to find on the site?

  14. accessing closed captions

    I work at a school which watches taped versions of btn and was wondering is there any way to access the captions from the taped DVD or is it necessary to record the show with the captions showing.

    The video player has finally been updated and now allows us to add subtitles to videos. The main issue now is obtaining those subtitles automatically (have to do it by hand currently) and making adding them to individual stories. But for now, the main episode, after a few days, has subtitles added. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email me. Thanks!

    I am closing this thread as it’s not particularly related to the website and it’s a point we’ve taken on board. If you any further feedback on this aspect of the show, please send it via the contact page on the BtN website.

  16. do something about the horrible spelling and grammar in the subtitles

    I was embarrassed to see the horrible spelling and grammar used in the 31.11.10 BTN. Examples: 'simple yous' for 'simple use', 'electronicly' for 'electronically', '20,000 Mongolia' for '20,000 Monterey Pines', 'presys' for 'pressies' (or 'prezzies'), 'pop laurt' for 'popularity', etc.
