The show is also available for viewers on the broadcaster´s on-demand platform My5. There is also a dedicated Milo website, complete with downloadable Activity sheets and a YouTube channel.
The series (52×11’ episodes) is bright, colourful and brings to the screen a contemporary graphic style. Milo, together with his best friends Lofty and Lark, uses role-play to explore the world of vocations – from Doctors and Mechanics, through to Hairdressers, Chefs, and Postal Workers – introducing pre-schoolers to a variety of professions in a positive and entertaining way. The series’ underlining message, through the eyes of Milo and his friends, is that every job is AMAZING!
