Maltese DownUnder is a community TV show produced in Melbourne, showcasing Maltese cultural heritage, the arts, music, food, cultural events and sport. The programs are produced in both Maltese and English to really be inclusive of all Maltese Australians, particularly the younger generations of Maltese in Australia, who do not really relate to Maltese as a spoken language. The show’s aim is to inform and entertain our audience through stories that inspire and strengthen the pride of all Maltese Australians.
Maltese DownUnder screens on C31 (TV channel 44) every Sunday at 4.00 pm with a repeat on Tuesdays at 3.00 pm. Anyone around the world can watch the show via LIVE stream on www.c31.org.au as well as on demand at www.c31.org.au/series/1313.
