Numberjacks is a very successful show, and we look forward to continuing to bring exciting entertainment to young people whilst helping them get off to great start in maths”.

In addition to the new series of Numberjacks, 2009 will see Open Mind begin production on its next TV and online series, Letterjets, as well as continuing the management of the rapidly expanding Numberjacks commercial rights programme world-wide.
