The NOS Youth News

The children's news program first aired on January 5, 1981. It was broadcast only on weekdays and lasted seven minutes. There was no NOS Youth News during school holidays. The program is now on television 365 days a year and the broadcasting time has been expanded to twenty minutes. It is one of the longest-running children's news programs in the world, just like the BBC's British Newsround. Newsround had a positive approach in the first years, mainly bringing cheerful news. The NOS Jeugdjournaal did not want to shy away from taboos and heavy subjects, but wanted to address them in a clear and child-friendly way. Before the program started, research had shown that children needed a serious news program. The target group is therefore actively involved in the news. Every day, viewers on the site can express their opinion and respond to a statement. During the Youth News election debate, schoolchildren are allowed to interview party leaders. This is unique in the world. The program has won various prizes over the years, such as the Gouden Stuiver (the most important prize for children's programs in the Netherlands) and an NPO Zapp Award.

Inspiration from the designer

The NOS Jeugdjournaal Vijfje was designed by artist Gabriel Lester. Lester was inspired by the distortions and irregularities that sometimes occur in a television picture: glitches. On the obverse is King Willem-Alexander. The portrait is depicted in two tones, giving the impression that there are hitches. This gives it an electric character. The reverse shows a globe, the symbol of the daily world news. This has been treated in the same way, so that the coin as a whole is reminiscent of a television screen.
