History[edit] The CBeebies
CBeebies
channel launched on 11 February 2002.[4] The domestic CBeebies
CBeebies
channel broadcasts from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 pm each day[5]– a result of the channel sharing bandwidth with the channel BBC
BBC
Four on the Freeview platform. The station was joined in March 2007[6] by an audio counterpart, CBeebies
CBeebies
Radio, which broadcast for three hours each day on the radio station BBC
BBC
Radio 7, however since the station was rebranded as BBC
BBC
Radio 4 Extra in April 2011, this obligation has ceased. A magazine called CBeebies
CBeebies
Weekly (now called CBeebies
CBeebies
Magazine) was first published in 2006. Since 27 March 2013, CBeebies
CBeebies
has been carried by the British Forces Broadcasting Service, sharing a channel with BFBS Extra.[7] The international CBeebies
CBeebies
channel is advert-free and wholly owned by BBC
BBC
Studios. The first international launch for the CBeebies
CBeebies
channel was in India
India
in May 2007, although the channel was withdrawn at the end of November 2012 due to "commercial considerations".[8] The channel is available in the Republic of Ireland, Asia, Poland, Romania, MENA, Africa, Australia, and the United States
United States
(in Spanish only). In March 2011, the on demand version of the network was launched in the US and is available on Xfinity. On 13 May 2011, CBeebies
CBeebies
was launched as a program block on the channel BBC
BBC
Kids in Canada, available on weekdays between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm. It is serving a similar schedule to the main channel. On 10 March 2017, CBeebies

Entertainment. Management[edit] In the UK, CBeebies
CBeebies
is operated by the BBC
BBC
Children's division and part of BBC
BBC
North. The division is also responsible for C BBC
BBC
and overall strategic responsibility for all of the BBC's domestic services for children rests with the Director of Children's, Alice Webb (since 2015).[9] The direction of the domestic CBeebies
CBeebies
channel itself rested with Kay Benbow, the last Controller of the channel commissioning all CBeebies
CBeebies
content across BBC
BBC
television, online, interactive TV, and radio.[10] She took over from the first controller Michael Carrington in 2010.[11] In 2017 it was announced that the CBeebies
CBeebies
controller post will close in December 2017 and all content for the CBeebies
CBeebies
brand would be commissioned by a new, pan BBC Children's role entitled Head of Content.[12] Internationally, CBeebies
CBeebies
is owned by BBC
BBC
Studios, who operate the brand. Programmes[edit] Main article: List of CBeebies
CBeebies
shows CBeebies
CBeebies
offers a mix of mostly UK-produced entertainment and educational output designed to encourage learning through play. These goals are realised through a range of programmes about simple science, natural history, music and movement, storytelling, make up and make do, puzzle programmes and animation.[13] The channel's schedule is deliberately the same every weekday, with a different schedule at weekends, so that children can know what is on instinctively. The schedule also includes signed programmes, shown in the UK between 14:00 and 17:00 on weekends. The international channels also show many programmes broadcast on the UK channel, however some include programmes unique to that service or are available through other networks in the UK (for example, Humf, which airs on Nick Jr. in the UK). Inversely however, shows that air on CBeebies
CBeebies
in the UK may air on networks other than CBeebies worldwide (for example, Chuggington
Chuggington
airs on Disney Junior Asia
Asia
instead of CBeebies
CBeebies
in the Asian region and on Treehouse TV
Treehouse TV
instead of BBC Kids in Canada). Also, the international CBeebies
CBeebies
airs 24 hours a day, unlike the UK variant. And, Mama Mirabelle's Home Movies aired on Minimini+ in Poland
Poland
instead of the Polish Variant of Cbeebies. Most viewed programmes[edit] The following is a list of the ten most watched shows on CBeebies, based on Live +7 data supplied by the Broadcasters' Audience Research Board.[14]

Presentation[edit] The links between programmes on CBeebies
CBeebies
are primarily achieved through the use of in-vision continuity, using presenters to interact with the children. In the UK, links are pre-recorded rather than broadcast live, as is the case on sister channel CBBC. They were originally pre recorded from studio TC0 at BBC
BBC
Television Centre in London, however moved out in 2008 to Teddington Studios, and returned briefly in 2010. From September 2011, the links have been based at the BBC's Northern base at MediaCityUK
MediaCityUK
in Salford, Greater Manchester, following the move of the BBC
BBC
Children's department there. International variants feature broadcast links produced either in the corresponding country, or from a central base. Logo and idents[edit] Main article: C BBC

television idents Presenters[edit] As well as hosting some of the shows, a number of presenters fill the gaps between the CBeebies
CBeebies
shows, performing little sketches, showing viewers' birthday cards, and introducing the shows. Many of the presenters used to have histories as characters on other services or on children's programmes. In the UK, presenters seen on the channel and the stranded service are:

Andy Day (2007–present) Katy Ashworth (2011–present) Cat Sandion (2013–present) Rebecca Keatley (2014–present) Ben Cajee (2015–present) Ryan Russell (2017–present)

Former presenters:

Sue Monroe (2002–2006) Nicole Davis (2003–2006) Justin Fletcher (2006–2007) Sarah-Jane Honeywell
Sarah-Jane Honeywell
(2006–2007) Eva Alexander (2006) Chris Jarvis (2002–2009) Pui Fan Lee (2002–2009) Sidney Sloane
Sidney Sloane
(2002–2013) Alex Winters (2009–2015) Cerrie Burnell (2009–2017)

The longest serving member is Sloane who introduced the programmes, along with most of the other presenters, for just over a decade (11 years) and still is a presenter on the African CBeebies
CBeebies
feed. The international variants feature different personalities per broadcast region. In Australia, Tara Colegrave is the main presenter since 2008,[15][16] while in Thailand, Hong Kong
Hong Kong
and Singapore
Singapore
Nisha Anil is the main presenter.[16][17][18] The Latin American variant used Roser Cabañas, present on-screen from 2009 until its closure in 2017,[19] with the Polish channel showcasing Aneta Bożena Piotrowska as main presenter since 2008. From November 2014 to June 2015, Aneta also appeared as a continuity presenter in the UK. On 24 April 2016, Aneta resumed presenting duties in the UK.[17][20] The South African channel utilises Sidney Sloane, who previously presented in the UK.[16] Stranded Segments[edit]

In the UK, the CBeebies
CBeebies
channel uses stranded segments throughout the day. On 10 March 2003[21] a segment called the Bedtime Hour was aired. From 3 April[22] to 19 December 2004, each weekend afternoon was divided into five segments, which were presented by one of the then-current presenters, namely Chris Jarvis, Nicole Davis, Pui Fan Lee, Sidney Sloane
Sidney Sloane
and Sue Monroe. Each was given a core theme (for instance Sid's segment included "building and making" programmes such as Bob the Builder, Sue's included arts and crafts theme programmes and so on). The five segments aired from 1:00 pm until 6:00 pm; the segmentation was later dispensed in December 2004. For many months after, though, the presenters still wore their respective colours. They also cropped up in props used in links, such as coloured plates. The five coloured room sections ran from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm and included the following:

Pui's Exploring Hour (Red Room), with programmes such as Come Outside, Teletubbies
Teletubbies
Everywhere, Bits and Bobs, Open a Door and Fab Lab[23] Sid's Fix-It Hour (Green Room), with programmes such as Fireman Sam, Postman Pat, Bob the Builder, Dr Otter and Little Robots[24] Chris's Singalong Hour (Blue Room), with programmes such as Tweenies, Zingalong, Balamory
Balamory
and Boogie Beebies[25] Sue's Make and Do Hour (Pink Room), with programmes such as SMarteenies, Tikkabilla, Pingu, and Big Cook, Little Cook[26] Nicole's Furry Friends Hour (Orange Room), with programmes such as Clifford the Big Red Dog, Barnaby Bear, The Magic Key and The Koala Brothers[27]

A new strand entitled Pick and Play was shown for the first time in June 2004,[28] in which viewers contacted CBeebies
CBeebies
via the website and other means to suggest programmes they would like to see. Also, in September 2005,[29] a new strand called Bear and Butterfly launched, showing on weekend mornings. Presented by a cartoon bear (voiced by Chris Jarvis) and butterfly (voiced by Sue Monroe), and with an occasional appearance from a caterpillar, the characters interacted in an animated environment. They also showed pictures that had been sent in on their Message Tree. New strands were introduced on 3 April 2006; Get Set Go from 7:00 am to 9:00 am, Explorers from 9:00 am to 10:00 am and 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm, Busy Beebies from 10:00 am to 11:45 am and 2:00 pm to 3:45 pm, Story Corner from 11:45 am to 12:00 pm and 3:45 pm to 4:00 pm and Little Lunchers from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm. The Bedtime Hour was retained.[30] On 19 March 2007,[31] these segments were dropped (apart from Get Set Go and Bedtime Hour) and modified to denote the time of day and the levels of activity. These segments still run to this day and include:

Get, Set, Go! – Early morning schedule between 6:00am and 9:00am; retained from 2006 and given longer hours. Includes programmes such as Show Me Show Me, Baby Jake, Raa Raa the Noisy Lion, The Octonauts, Bing, Teletubbies, Postman Pat, Hey Duggee, Go Jetters, Kate and Mim-Mim and Justin's House. Discover and Do – Late morning and early afternoon, weekdays between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm. The strand is aimed at young children who would not be attending school or pre-school. It often contains programmes that give a learning opportunity to viewers, such as Alphablocks, Numberblocks, Teacup Travels, Yakka Dee, Something Special, Mr Bloom: Here and There, Pablo Bing ' 'and Let's Play. The hour between 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm is branded as Lunch Time and features shows such as I Can Cook and Tinga Tinga Tales. Big Fun Time – Late afternoon weekdays between 3:00 pm and 6:00 pm. This strand aims at the higher end of its remit, airing programming for children who have recently returned from school. Programs include Kazoops!, Sarah & Duck, Messy Goes to Okido, Tree Fu Tom, Rastamouse, My Pet and Me and Apple Tree House. Bedtime Hour – The final hour of CBeebies
CBeebies
broadcasting between 6:00 pm and 7:00 pm. The original stranded section of the channel, Bedtime Hour features calm-natured programmes, such as Clangers, The Adventures of Abney & Teal, Charlie and Lola, 64 Zoo Lane and In the Night Garden...
In the Night Garden...
The final programme is always the Bedtime Stories slot (see below) and is followed by a final song, "The Time Has Come to Say Goodnight", as transmission closes and goes over to BBC
BBC
Four.

When these segments were initially introduced, each segment featured its own presenting team and set, with Chris Jarvis and Pui Fan Lee ( Alex Winters and Cerrie Burnell after they left in January 2009) presenting Discover and Do in the CBeebies
CBeebies
"living room"; Lunch Time in the "kitchen"; Bedtime Hour in the "bedroom"; Sidney Sloane
Sidney Sloane
(plus Andy Day when he joined the channel later in 2007) presenting Get, Set, Go! in the "living room" and Big Fun Time in the "garage". However, since moving production to Manchester this is no longer the case, with the exception of Bedtime Hour which is presented from the area nearest the house's bed.

The Bedtime Hour on-screen ident from March 2003 to March 2016.

Storytimes[edit] While the lunchtime story is usually read by one of the regular presenters, the final show of each day, the "Bedtime Story" is read by a guest storyteller, including well known actors, comedians, and past presenters of BBC
BBC
children's television. Some notable storytellers in this slot have included James McAvoy, Simon Pegg, David Hasselhoff, Lulu, Damian Lewis, Rosamund Pike, Toby Stephens, David Tennant, Ben Faulks, Michael Rosen, Floella Benjamin, Shayne Ward, Chris Evans and Tom Hardy. Dolly Parton
Dolly Parton
is scheduled to appear 25 October 2017. In an unusual move, James Bolam appeared on "Bedtime Story" in costume and in character as Grandpa from Grandpa in My Pocket, not as himself. Lesser-known storytellers James Blishen and Elliot King have appeared and taken inspiration from CBeebies' storytime slot, with a programme for James in pre-planning called 'Storytime with James'.
