Juiced TV Logies special

Our kids go to the Logies!

Juiced TV’s three roving reporters Bella, Jess and Josh were given the red carpet treatment at this month’s TV Week Logies in Melbourne. After being flown down from Brisbane, and glamming it up with hair and makeup, our three kids hit the red carpet to interview stars including Delta Goodrem, Julia Morris, Grant Denyer, the Masterchef judges, Rove McManus and more.

Johnny Depp and Stephen Graham surprise sick kids in hospital

Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp has taken time off from shooting his latest Pirates of the Caribbean film to visit sick kids at the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital in Brisbane. Dressed in full costume and in full character, both Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow and Stephen Graham as Scrum spent over three hours making a real difference to a lot of sick kids and their families in hospital.

Straight from their set on the Gold Coast, both actors flew in for the surprise visit via helicopter, landing on the hospital’s rooftop.
The action was filmed by Juiced – a TV show made by the kids in hospital, for the kids in hospital, funded by the Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Each week, Juiced films and broadcasts a 30 minute kids TV show at the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital in Brisbane. Patients and siblings are the stars of the show – hosting and interviewing in each segment, while also helping produce content.

 

Kids in hospital are the stars of Juiced TV

7 January 2015

Juiced TV, co-funded by the Children’s Hospital Foundation, has launched at the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital.

Episode 1 was jam-packed with fun activities, interviews and special guests that brought big smiles to little faces, especially when an adorable miniature horse named Dumbledore trotted by the hospital to say hello. There were some up-close moments with cheeky lemurs; we learned how to draw a cartoon alien; and we found out the magical secret to magnetic hands.

Juiced TV is changing the way kids experience hospital, with broadcasts streaming through every child’s personal in-room entertainment system. It’s filmed and broadcast weekly, giving sick kids and their siblings the chance to star in their very own TV show. Juiced creates a unique way for them and their families to engage and communicate with one another, while also reducing the alienation felt in an environment that can be scary and sometimes painful. Ultimately we hope it helps to speed up their recovery process and give them a greater sense of confidence.

Juiced was created and developed by Pip Russell, a long-time advocate of the Children’s Hospital Foundation. Pip has been a presenter for two of Network Ten’s national children’s shows, Toasted TV and Totally Wild. Now it’s time for Juiced (an idea that’s been in the making for over three years) to bring together her experience and passion for making a difference, and make happiness happen.

Juiced TV is a show by the kids in hospital for the kids in hospital. If you want to be a part of the fun, email hello@juicedtv.com.au and stay tuned for Episode 2.
