BBC Worldwide sells two kids shows across the globe

MUMBAI: BBC Worldwide has announced a string of international sales for two of its key children's programmes - The Secret Show and Charlie and Lola.

The commercial arm of the BBC has licensed new animation show The Secret Show to broadcasters in France, Hong Kong, Finland, Russia and the Middle East - bringing the total to 13. It will also start airing on Virgin transatlantic flights from 1 December 2006.

Aimed at 7-12 year olds, The Secret Show is about secret people doing secret things. Special agents Victor Volt and Anita Knight work for U.Z.Z, protecting the world against the evil forces of T.H.E.M. Managed by a boss whose name is quite literally 'Changed Daily', and assisted on their madcap missions by insane scientist Professor Professor, Victor and Anita manage to save the world - or large parts of it - once or sometimes even twice a week.

Charlie and Lola which is based on the books by Lauren Child, has just been licensed to 3 new broadcasters - IRIB in Iran, TVB in Hong Kong and Playhouse Disney in Spain. The pre-school animation, which is a mix of 2D CelAction animation, paper cutout, fabric design, real textures, photomontage and archive footage, has now been sold to 33 countries.

Snow Queen was sold to Al Jazeera's children's channel and World of Peter Rabbit & Friends and Tale of Peter Rabbit & Beatrix Potter were sold to Momo TV in Taiwan.
