An open lesson “Television Interviews” was held as part of the project on preparing a journalism textbook for blind children.

Svetlana Malysheva, the director of the Izhevsk Zoo, became a guest of Anton Ponomarev's author's program “Cool People”. How does a Zoo work? When does the director's working day start? What do animals do at night? Why is Neseiku called the “flying walrus”? How did the monkey Lola become a real fashionista? The guest of the program answered these and many other questions asked by the TV presenter.

Anton Ponomarev is a blind young correspondent. He plays hockey, sings, jumps with a parachute. Two years ago he decided to become a journalist. In his city of Izhevsk (Russia), Anton is engaged in an inclusive media club. Together with ordinary children he edits the children's city newspaper “School Monday” for blind children. The newspaper is issued in braille. “Cool People” is another author's project of a young journalist. Children, parents, and teachers attended the lesson.

The program “Cool People” is of interest to the audience and has already taken part in competitions of various levels.
