CBeebies gets 'In The Night Garden' back

MUMBAI: CBeebies has announced that 20 new episodes of the children‘s television show In The Night Garden are coming to it and the BBC HD channel.

Starting today, a new episode will transmit daily at 6 pm from Monday-Friday for 20 episodes, making four weeks of Night Garden fun as part of CBeebies‘ The Bedtime Hour, as well as a simulcast on BBC HD.

The show is best described as a modern televisual interpretation of a nursery rhyme picture book with loveable characters inhabiting a magical place that exists between waking and sleeping in a child‘s imagination.

Filmed in a real woodland setting, the show is specially created for the under-fours, exploring the dreaming time between waking and sleeping.

Reached by following a magical little blue star, the Night Garden is a warm and affectionate world which is home to a comical and diverse community of toys, living happily together.

The series is narrated by Sir Derek Jacobi.

The show launched two years ago and has won the Best Pre-School Live Action Children‘s Bafta Award for two consecutive years, in 2007 and 2008. In The Night Garden has also gone global with more than 29 countries from Australia to Poland and Canada to Holland now screening the show.

These new 20 episodes will take the series total to 100, ensuring the show will live on CBeebies for many years to come.

CBeebies controller Michael Carrington says, "In The Night Garden is our top rating show and it has taken its place in the heart of our schedule and the hearts of our viewers. Wherever I go, parents talk about the show with fondness and enthusiasm, so I‘m delighted that we have 20 new episodes to share with our young viewers and their families."
