CBBC Channel

There were also no summer breaks in 2001, 2002 and 2003, when Nigel Pickard wanted BP and Live and Kicking to mimic what had worked for SM:TV and run all year round, so the Friday episode was dropped between April and September to pay for it (in 2001 Fridays were given over to a very welcome repeat run for almost all of Maid Marian and her Merry Men).

Richard Marson says in the 50th book that in 2004 when the show went 5 days a week (on CBBC channel at least) one thing they negotiated as part of it was to bring the summer break back again. (5 days a week of course only lasted about 18 months but the summer break remained as the budget kept being cut).
