Just like Bruce Lee, Enter the Dragon. We at CBMP present to you, Enter the Bagrat aka Enter the Kangaroo with our double translation at work.

From the West to East influence. Enter the Bagrat, web series is about the new world, Asia and Australia, presented in a witty and human centric way. No hardcore politics or religious rants, but everything else we should celebrate and embrace - our collective heritage. Representing Asian Australians and anyone with an Asian language or genuine interest in Asia.

Meet host JJ Chen with co and guest hosts, Liam Frappell, Mayu Iwasaki and Dion Woo. Every episode is full of surprise guest hosts and Asian countries! Because, we have our Fingers on the Asian + Australian Pulse!

Tagline: When no one has a clue about Asia and Australian, a panel of cunning linguists saves the day with their Finger on the Asian + Australian Pulse.

CBMP's TV Pilot Show was a top 10 finalist for the 2021 ABC iView Pitch-O-Rama contest.

Captain Bagrat's journey from concept to scripting to production could not have been possible without a generous and talented team of creatives. A big shout out to our earliest believer and sponsor, Bendigo Bank Darling Square Community Branch for giving us seed funding to see this concept come to life!
