I might be imagining this, but the new trailer for Cbeebies thats been on the main channels for the last few days, is the music a remix/new take of the CBBC theme from 1994-2002? I mean specifically the "la la" sung part.

Actually now I've had chance to see it, I can see what you mean:


This has just gone out again on BBC One so I've just gone back and captured it.

It definitely is from what I can tell.

One of those things that makes you realise how fragile life is, and how it could happen to any of us without warning.

Brain Haemorrhages freak me out. Just the fact that one minute you could be fine, then a few seconds later a blood vessel bursts and you could be dead within minutes. I believe Dr. Dre just survived one.

What sickens me is the reports the press were phoning up the coroner trying to find out the cause of death before the parents were informed (and at all). Shows they'll never change.

Well unfortunately nature is cruel sometimes. I suppose the only saving grace for Archie was it happened in his sleep. Best way to go in my opinion, but doesn't make it any easier for his parents and his girlfriend.

Happened to my dad, albeit it was a pulmonary embolism. So many things that could happen without warning, with no sign you even had anything wrong with you... I guess the old saying live every day like it's your last is true.

So sad. I hope that the Lyndhursts are ok. Genuinely one of the scariest things.
