BBC Three to piggyback CBeebies

I think if BBC THREE does come back it will be at 9pm as the programmes are mainly post watershed. As for the same LCN as CBeebies or CBBC, that is a non starter as you cannot broadcast post watershed programmes on a children's LCN. I seem to remember BBC FOUR having to be closed at 9pm a long time ago as the switching from CBeebies did not work on Freeview and therefore after 9 BBC FOUR programmes could not be broadcast. LCN 99 would be good for BBC THREE.

Blue Peter's 60th anniversary

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.
