Lee Mack becomes a kids' TV presenter

Duck Quacks Don't Echo goes to children's telly

Sky is creating a child-friendly version of Lee Mack’s comedy science panel show Duck Quacks Don’t Echo.

Sixteen short episodes, averaging about five minutes each, are being created for the Sky Kids app. They will feature experiments previously aired on the TV shows, but with new links and material from Mack.

The new episodes will be announced by Sky’s kids’ TV chief Lucy Murphy at the Children’s Media Conference in Sheffield later today.

Sky boats that more than 4,500 episodes of kids’ shows are available on its  various platforms. Those will be joined by new episodes of Morph from later this year, as previously announced.

New child-friendly episodes of Big Cats, An Amazing Animal Family are also being made for the app.
