“Hi-5 Philippines”, the Filipino adaptation of the Australian children’s edu-tainment (education -entertainment) series of the same title, has recently been cited by the annual Anak TV Seal as one of the winners of its 2016 awards for best children shows. Hi-5 Philippines was cited for its conveyance of Filipino values, customs and tradition through its colorful song and dance numbers that kids surely love to see. Catch Hi-5 Philippines everyday, Monday-Friday 8:30 am, Saturday 9:30 am and Sunday, 9:00 am.
Other TV5 shows that garnered honors included the health magazine program “Healing Galing”, the parenting talk-show “Happy Wife, Happy Life”, the catholic program, “Power to Unite” and children-fantasy show “LolaBasyang.com” which has been honored as a finalist of the prestigious Prix Jeunesse Awards in Germany. “Power to Unite” airs every Sunday, 7:00 am followed by “Healing Galing,” 7:30 am.
