The broadcast of the new channel about local geniuses called Brainz has started on Tuesday. Brainz is a result of the cooperation by United Media and “Serbia’s Scientific Television” (“Srpska naučna televizija”), and it aims to focus the public attention on the genius minds in Serbia and their achievements.
“I’m pleased that United Media has recognized the potential of the program, so far called “Serbia’s Scientific Television”, and as of today Brainz TV. Our initial idea was to promote sciences, education and culture. We have intentionally chosen a non-profit way, believing it was the right one for raising public awareness about the importance of education. We have caught United Media’s attention, and as it turns out, the company perfectly understands our mission and wants to support such a project, well aware of its broader social importance. That is how we, to my great satisfaction, have found a partner who is ready to invest in science, culture and art in Serbia, with special attention to ‘the ambassadors’ of knowledge – young geniuses. I believe in the Brainz content, with shows like The Champions of Knowledge, Scientists’ CV, Academy, Brainz art, as well as many other series, in which presenters will be the best biology, geography and medicine students, aiming at influencing the public conscience and contributing to the popularization of the sciences and education in our country. At the same time, I hope that the operators will recognize the importance of the content we create and include Brainz into the programs they offer,” Zivojin Zika Petrovic, Director and Editor-in-Chief of the Brainz channel.
Ivanka Popovic, the Belgrade University’s rector, was present at the channel presentation and expressed her support.
“It’s a great honour to have an opportunity to address you in this important time when the education is granted a new place in Serbia’s media sphere. It is essential to put in an additional effort at all levels and form of education, and I hope that the Brainz channel will promote science in a responsible and popular way at the same time. I think that the youth will have an opportunity to find role models in other excellent students and discover love for science in themselves.”
The educational shows, initially produced by Brainz, will promote the best Serbia has – successful pupils, students, scientists, but also the current world trends in sciences, culture and arts.
Brainz was officially announced at the Belgrade University’s Rectorate Solemn Hall, offering possibilities to the experts and media to learn more about the channel content and plans.
As of this Tuesday, you can watch the Brainz channel on the SBB, Total TV, EON, D3i, Telemach, NetTv Plus, Telemark, Oskar net, SunCo, mad Net, Orion Telekom, Victory Media, Smiley TV, Exe Net, Av Com, Sat Trakt and many other platforms.
