One of Canada's most famous young adults helps honor UNICEF on its 50th anniversary.
Road To Avonlea's Sarah Polley, 17, hosts Children First, a special featuring six award-winning animated shorts from the National Film Board. It airs Sunday at CBC.
Polley and a panel of children discuss the impact of these films.
Highlights in this stylish piece include the shorts To See the World, TV Tango and Dinner For Two.
Two chameleons fight over a big juicy fly in Dinner For Two. The dispute disrupts the jungle but a resolution is found.
TV Tango demonstrates the effect of television violence on children in a non-preachy way.
The best is To See The World, in which a young boy sees the ugliness children around the world must endure through a train window. He deals with the sadness of it by correcting the wrongs in his art book -- he draws food for the hungry, shelter for the homeless, moms and dads for parentless and toys for child laborers.
