      'Our Voice': UNICEF and Lebanon TV launch youth-produced series
      By Serene Assir and Sabine Dolan

      Each December, UNICEF's International Children's Day of Broadcasting involves young people worldwide in media programming and production, giving them a chance to express their opinions on major issues and develop new skills. Here is one in a series of stories about youth media.

      NEW YORK, USA, 1 December 2006 - The Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation (LBC) and UNICEF are showcasing the viewpoints of the country's million-strong youth audience with a new television series called 'Sawtna', which means 'Our Voice'.

      'Sawtna' is a one-of-a-kind initiative in the Middle East. Launched on 8 November, the programme features 8- to 10-minute documentaries that address issues affecting young people in the context of the country's complex social, political and economic climate.

      What makes this show special is that it is created by a team of producers between the ages of 15 and 21.
