Here is #100 of "Growing Up With Chinese": http://english.cntv.cn/program/learnchinese/20120309/117736.shtml
Page 1 of this series has episode 100 and newest episodes. Page 10 has oldest episodes and episode 1. Most episodes have downloadable scripts of parts of the episode. ( Maybe all now in 2013 do but I have not rewatched many of them ). Some parts of the videos you may find very hard. I have trouble watching the many of the 1 or 2 minute bubble captioned cartoons about 3/4 way through every episode.
An interview ( after you get by a 1 minute grainy Chinese opera part of the MacInnis sisters singing ) of the teenage MacInnis sisters : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hk-ZgsukvXU
This Youtube video does not play last 1 or so ( sometimes or always ?)
