CBeebies unveils winter lineup

MUMBAI: CBeebies has announced their lineup for the upcoming winter and spring season.

Piplings, little lamb Timmy, a shrinking Grandad and the first TV show for much loved pair Chris Jarvis and Pui Fan Lee, are all on hand to delight the under-sixes on CBeebies.

BBC Children‘s controller Richard Deverell says: "This is an exciting season for us – special versions of BBC iPlayer for CBBC and CBeebies audiences will launch and the programmes unveiled today have at their heart the aim to provide fresh, distinctive and uniquely British content that is loved by every child in the UK.

"Our programmes and websites aim to inspire a child‘s imagination, help a child understand itself and its place in the world and provide positive role models of children for children.

"We want to provide moments for children when they can laugh out loud, drop their jaws in astonishment and, above all, be inspired, and I believe that‘s what we‘ve achieved with this season across radio, tv and online."

News highlights of the season include CBeebies hosts Chris Jarvis and Pui Fan Lee pairing up to present a new show called Show Me Show Me; new episodes of In The Night Garden and presenter, Justin Fletcher, in the channel‘s first ever comedy sketch show, Gigglebox.

The CBeebies schedule is zoned to mirror a child‘s mood and activities through the day. CBeebies controller Michael Carrington said, "We originate over 100 hours of new programming every year for the under-sixes and I‘m proud to unveil a season of modern, exciting and fresh shows that blend music, movement and storytelling."

For the playful learning zone, Discover and Do, new shows include Timmy Time. Little lamb Timmy, along with his animal chums, including Yabba the duckling, Finlay the fox cub and Paxton the piglet go through an animal version of a child‘s nursery day in each episode.

The broadcaster adds that another show Waybuloo is not just a series, it‘s a philosophy for a happy life - and is like nothing children will have ever seen before.

The series transports children into a magical land called Nara – a real world, which is inhabited by adorable animated characters called Piplings who embody a range of emotions including love, wisdom, happiness and harmony.

Show Me Show Me sees Chris Jarvis and Pui Fan Lee move on from their channel presentation roles to team up in an all-new series in which the two play, explore and investigate in their exciting new playroom.

Poetry Pie brings to life poems of contemporary poets specially written for CBeebies, with an animated cast of creatures who act, dance and sing the words of the poems.

Charlie the Alien, Amber the Hermit Crab, Mischa the Hamster, Evie the Cow and Findlay the Dragon read the funny and charming poems, all of which are chosen to reflect the lives of children watching at home.

Big Fun Time, entertaining programmes for the afternoon, include this season Dirtgirlworld – a fearless, fun-loving, gumboot-wearing girl who grows huge tomatoes, knows the names of clouds and drives a big, orange tractor.

This music-filled series explores nature and is full of bizarre insects, underground tunnels and performing stunts. Grandpa In My Pocket is a new comedy drama aimed at four-to-six year olds.

Grandpa lives with his family and grandson Jason in a beautiful seaside town called Sunnysands. Everyone thinks he spends all his time stuck in his armchair, but when he puts his magic shrinking cap on, he becomes small enough to fit into Jason‘s pocket and the two then have a host of hilarious adventures.

Myths, legends and age-old tales from around the world jump off the pages and straight into a child‘s imagination in Tellytales. This is a mix of animation and live action, where children help create the artwork and play all the characters.

Returning to the Bedtime Hour are new episodes of In The Night Garden about that universal time between waking and sleeping.
