This week SBS launched a new reality TV show. Child Genius is the search for Australia’s smartest kid.

And while there seems to be plenty of dramatic edits, it sounds like a show that’s full of heart.

We speak to mum Leanne about why she put her son Nathan forward to the program, and what difference the show has made to him.

Child Genius launched on Monday November 12 at 7:30pm on SBS.

It will run Monday - Wednesday for two weeks. For more information on the show check out the SBS website.
