CBBC embarks on a series of global adventures

MUMBAI: BBC‘s kids channel CBBC has announced a slew of new programmes with an aim to help children understand and be inspired by the world around them.

CBBC controller Damian Kavanagh says, "Not only do we cover international events and news stories through programmes such as Blue Peter and Newsround, but we hope these brand new series will open the eyes of British children and inspire them to think about the world around them."

In Hai! Karate – Journey To Japan, five children from across the UK, pair up with one of their parents to embark on a journey to Japan, the home of karate. The 10-part series from CBBC will air next year.
Narrated by wildlife presenter Steve Backshall and CBBC‘s Barney Harwood, Natural Born Hunters, takes a look at some of the most supreme predators in the animal kingdom.

Drawing from the BBC‘s Natural History Unit‘s archive this 13-part series looks at how some of the most lethal creatures in the wild survive a typical day, relying on their instincts, speed, and tactics is often not enough, and luck can mean the difference between life and death. This show also airs next year.

Serious adventure series returns next year to take CBBC viewers on an expedition to Tanzania in East Africa. Serious Explorers: Livingstone retraces the footsteps of the great 19th century explorer David Livingstone. The series will follow eight young adventurers as they journey through the heart of Africa, on a month-long adventure of a lifetime, living together, and learning from each other.

Also returning to CBBC is the series, 8, which continues in the New Year with Safari 8.

Barney‘s South America is a 26-part series which takes a humorous approach to looking at the natural world.
