The show is also being promoted as: DEMOCRACY GAME SHOW MAKES VOTER EDUCATION ENGAGING.
The programme starts this Saturday, 7th May on SABC2 from 12:30-13:00. PLEASE WATCH!!
SABC has done some desktop research on democracy game shows, and it appears that seems that this kind of game show is the first in South Africa and possibly in the world. We can confirm that internationally it is the first democracy game show for general audiences. Generally the trend overseas and elsewhere is for these type of game shows to be limited to school-going audiences. It will do a lot to raise general political and democracy literacy in a fun and interactive way.
Please note that as per standard gameshow guidelines, no employees of the IEC & SABC are permitted to take part in the Right to Win game show competition.
Regards and happy viewing!
