Aimed at 2-4 year olds, Same Smile takes
a look at Children's lives around the UK
and discovers that while we have different lives, we all have the Same Smile.
From Lisburn to Inverness and from Cambridge to Colwyn Bay, Same Smile
sees presenter Nisha Anil and her trio
of pandas - Mish, Moosh and Mogo -
pay a visit to a nursery or group of children
from a different regional area.
Nisha discovers the theme for the episode inside the same smile suitcase- be it a favourite place, food, garden or family activity.

David McCue was commissioned by
BBC Scotland to create a full programme identity for Same Smile; comprising logo, title sequence and generic/ episodic
content graphics such as stings, wipes,
lower thirds and end credits.
The concept for the title sequence looked
at the different regional locations and ways
of life in the UK focusing on City,
countryside, coastal and suburban, connecting all these areas in the final
frame with the theme of community
The sequence ensures that the children
are the centre of attention, wearing a broad spectrum of bright colours, sharing and engaging in activities together.
