FEDERAL WAY, Wash. — The "BizKid$" TV show, financed by a credit union consortium and set for airing on public television, will now be broadcast Jan 8 with some 100 U.S. stations participating, according to officials of the show and the Washington Credit Union League.

But before one of the 26 episodes gets broadcast in the U.S., a British business TV station has agreed to air the show Oct. 1 with discussions underway with the British Broadcasting Company for more United Kingdom telecasts later on.
