A WORLD OF WONDERS is a live action series that allows young viewers to become armchair travelers as they criss-cross the globe, delighting in its wonders, cultures, colours, sounds and flavours. During the past four seasons, the crew and cast of WOW have visited nearly 40 countries, racking up an impressive 578,000kms on six continents.
This season, Cari visits explores a glacier in the Swiss Alps, goes gorilla trekking in Rwanda, snorkels with sea turtles in the Greek islands, travels back in time at Edinburgh Castle, monkeys around in Bali, and herds reindeer in Finnish Lapland. From Scotland to Germany, India to Indonesia, Finland to Kenya and Singapore to Zanzibar, our intrepid host explores continent after continent as she searches for the WOW factor.
A WORLD OF WONDERS won a 2010 Gemini Award for Best Original Score. The series was also nominated in 2010 for Best Children’s Series.
