Tweenies is a televising series for children created by the BBC. The TVE-2 (Spanish Television-Channel 2) emits it every day on mornings (from Monday to Friday).

After the analysis of the Series, we observed an educative transdisciplinary model, a model which worries on the personal values education, and in which the music plays an important role through abundant and varied practices and musical experiences.
