CBBC unveils two children's entertainment shows

MUMBAI: Continuing the BBC‘s investment in originals, UK children‘s content CBBC controller Anne Gilchrist has announced two entertainment shows for CBBC.

Putting children through their paces, these entertainment shows will look to test children‘s ability to stay silent while also celebrating the power of friendship.

Gilchrist says, "High quality and enjoyable entertainment programmes are a key part of CBBC‘s wide range of original and distinctive content for young viewers. These two exciting new shows will definitely keep children up and down the country smiling."

Keep Your Enemies Close is a new game show format that partners friends and ‘enemies‘ together. At the start of each show, four sets of best friends are split up and forced to work with their ‘enemy‘. Each round will test the newly united foes‘ patience, co-ordination and co-operation to the limit.

To win, the players must keep their enemies close, completing several physical and mental challenges and battling to decide which of them will tackle the nice tasks and which of them will face the nasty tasks.

The pairs of enemies get whittled down until only one duo remain for the final, where they will then be reunited with their best friends and go head-to-head with their rivals.

The School Of Silence is the place where keeping quiet is an absolute riot. In each episode, four of some of the noisiest kids in the country are sent to the School Of Silence where they are tested to the limit.

Put through intensive silent training, they will have to keep absolutely silent while carrying out hilarious challenges designed to make them laugh, scream and shout. The slightest sound will mean instant expulsion. But those who can keep it zipped will graduate and win The Golden Gobstopper.
