Punch! Productions brief introduction:
“We are a local television production company which has produced local programmes for MediaCorp. Previously, we produced a programme (May I help you?). It At the end of the episode, the family is given the aid to improve their daily lives. Overall the series was well received by the community and it was featured in both the Channel 5 and Channel 8 news and even the SPH papers. Calls and emails poured in to MediaCorp with people eager to lend a helping hand. These came in the form of many things, and they came from people of different races and religions.
Some of the prominent personalities include newscasters and the head of SINDA (Singapore Indian Development Association). After the episodes have been aired, we have recieved many calls and emails from the public wanting to adopt some of the families we have featured on the show. The Uthavikku Varalama team was interviewed by The Straits Times for making a difference in many individuals/families’ lives through this programme and we were featured in both the Channel 5 and Channel 8 news. Together with this favourable outcome, “Uthavikku Varalama” was awarded the Best Info-Ed Programme of 2009. Following this success, we have been commissioned to produce the second season of this programme and also to bring about a difference in some of the individuals/families’ lives.”
