“Baka pwede naman?” Jim Paredes urges ABS-CBN to air educational shows for children amid COVID outbreak

OPM artist Jim Paredes urged ABS-CBN to air educational children shows after the broadcasting network announced that they’re going to suspend teleserye productions and live shows because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Paredes made the said suggestion via Twitter, requesting that shows like Sineskwela, Hiraya Manawari and Bayani should make a comeback on television.

“Dear @ABSCBNNews #AbsCbn baka pwede naman na magre-run din kayo sa free TV nung mga educational TV shows ninyo. Nasa bahay lang mga bata. One month of Sineskwela, Hiraya, Bayani will do them good,” Paredes said.

The said shows educated children during the 90s and received numerous awards.

ABS-CBN owned Knowledge Channel then responded to Paredes request, informing the artist that they’re already airing the said shows every day.

“Hi, sir! Sa Knowledge Channel po ay patuloy ipinapalabas ang mga shows na ito araw-araw. At ngayon pong mas madalas nasa bahay ang mga bata, maganda kung mapapanood nila ang ating favorite 90’s educational shows. Available rin po ito sa aming Youtube channel,” Knowledge Channel told Paredes.

Paredes followers also agree with the artist’s suggestion.

“I will agree to this. Ung every morning un ang mppnuod kesa mga drama na about sa kabit at panloloko,” netizen @DaLonelyDragon said.

“I agree. Given the class suspensions + the move of TV networks to put all live telecasts / program tapings on hold, children and young adults now have an opportunity to watch those EDUCATIONAL TV SHOWS of old that taught actual VALUES and KNOWLEDGE,” netizen @kikorustia remarked.

On March 15, ABS-CBN suspended the staging of live entertainment shows and tapings of teleseryes to protect their employees from being infected by COVID-19.

However, they assured that they’re still going to continue their broadcast operations to update the public.

Televiewers are going to expect to watch replays.

We thank our Kapamilya viewers for their understanding and continued support.” the network said.
