The trouble is rightly or wrongly Blue Peter is a show that survives on its history rather than its appeal to today's generation - it does stick out in the CBBC schedules like a sore thumb.
I really don't understand this. I watch BP from time to time and it is a really excellent programme. Kids are still writing in to the programme in fact there are more now than in 2011. Programmes like Blue Peter and Saturday Mash Up are totally unique to the BBC now and they are programmes the BBC show be doing. Endless Drama, cartoons, comedy are all well and good but it nice to see a magazine format that kids can actually interactive with Live.
