BBC Janala Mojay Mojay Shekha ( দৈনিক জবাবদিহি; 'BBC Window Learning with Fun') is a Bangladeshi prime time light entertainment educational game show with comedy sketches for English education. The show was produced by the BBC and broadcast over two series on Bangladesh Television from 16 October 2010 until 7 June 2012.


BBC Janala Mojay Mojay Shekha is an educational game show teaching English[1] which seeks to motivate audiences to learn English through fun.[2] The game show has a partner programme Bishaash, a supernatural detective drama series.[3] The game show builds on the English used in the drama to help teach the language.[4]

Both programmes were part of English in Action, an initiative launched and funded by UKaid from the Department for International Development (DfID) to support the economic development of Bangladesh by raising the English-language skills of 25 million people across the country[1][4] by 2017. BBC Janala provides daily three-minute audio lessons to the people who want to improve their English language skills to get a better job and access to the global economy. Calls to BBC Janala increased significantly from 8,700 per day to 58,300 after BBC Janala Mojay Mojay Shekha and Bishaash began transmitting on national network television.[5]

The game show is hosted by Rumana Malik Munmun. It features "Kamal's World" with reluctant student and slap-stick comedian Kamal Bayazid and English teacher Alexandra Tyers. Together they set challenges for competitors in and out of the studio, to develop their English skills.[6][7] In series two, "Raisa in Bangladesh" features Farzana Dua Elahe and Suzana Ansar as they visit their family and business interests around Bangladesh.[7]

The 24-part first series was aimed at a young audience, including games with giant alphabets, racing rickshaws and cricket games. There were word games where the key words are taken out from sentences and the contestant has to race ahead with alphabets to make a correct phrase or sentence. There were techniques including role playing where contestants converse in English.[1] The 16-part second series had a different appearance, style and pace. The show included with actor-led comedy sketches; short, location-based dramas and onscreen graphic-based video inserts. The show revolves around two teams of four contestants (from all over the country) who compete to win points and play a learning based game.[8][9]
