Children Explores Museum Artifacts in New TV Show

Saugeen Shores | by John Divinski  

Eastlink's "What's That" premiered at Bruce County Museum and Cultural Centre.

Children of Saugeen Shores are becoming TV stars on a new program that was launched by Eastlink, called "What's That?"

The premiere event of the program was held last weekend at the Bruce County Museum and Cultural Centre.

One of the participants in the program, 9 year old Simon Small of G. C. Huston school had a simple explanation about the format of the program.

He says the kids were presented with "some old stuff" from the museum and they had to guess what it was.

One such item was a mustache cup which was used by men to protect their waxed mustaches from the hot liquid as they were drinking and 7 year old Lilly Crawford, a Grade 2 student at Port Elgin Saugeen Central thought the item could be used by a member of her family.

She says her granpa, who has a moustache, should be using one.

Lilly says she did the program because she thought it would be fun and "my parents wanted me to be on TV."

Eastlink will air What's That featuring children of the area, on their community channel every Saturday at 10:30am through March with a new season to begin this coming Fall.

One of the producers of the program, Janet Dawson of Saugeen Shores, says the whole concept is to have fun as kids try to identify objects they've never really seen before

Auditions for future programs will be held on Saturday, March 2nd at the museum, 10:30am to 1pm.

They're looking for kids aged 5-to-10 to take part.
