CBBC

...a few changes (March 2006)

And Angellica and Andrew seem to be fronting the CBBC Channel holiday mornings, bit of a backwards presenting schedule.

It looks as though Sam & Mark's level up is coming from CBBC One/Two's old studio now, very strange. I suppose they could get away with it. Surely if they schedule right, they could be live on BBC One & the channel by saying on the channel now, and here on one, etc.

Has the CBBC Channel studio had a big of a tarting up? All the links I've seen recently have been from a sort of pod-like alcove in the studio, which I haven't seen before. What I thought strange was that on Saturday a link for CBBC One was also done from in there. But I suppose it makes sense, if Level Up has taken over Studio 10.

Also, as someone else has remarked, those presenters normally on the CBBC Channel seem to have swapped places with those on CBBC One! Is this perhaps the beginning of a shift in focus...similar to the one going on over at News 24...!? Shifting the more well-known faces over onto the channel...

CBBC Two actually but there are no in-vision links on CBBC Two on Saturdays anymore. There is only the one at the end which is simulcast on the channel.

Yes I notice that Anne Foy seems to be doing CBBC One and Two's Holiday mornings this week. It'll be interesting to see who is back on CBBC One next Tuesday afternoon

Looks like it's still pre-recorded location links today on CBBC One...seems a long-term thing now that there is only one continuity studio.

I wouldn't be surprised - the current look was brought in under Alison Sharman, who only stuck around for a few months. With each new controller that comes in, usually a rebrand isn't far off.

IMHO she missed a trick when she scrapped the bugs - the current branding is lacking something.

The fact they are still on cbeebies just looks a mess.

the old Childrens logo was the best or even the Yellow and Black looked good but these Arrow things don't work for me.

Agreed with all comments. The arrows lack everything. I prefered the original bug styled CBBC logo.
The bugs could have easily been reinvented. Personally I would have put them into live scenes, attacking the world, and have them designed to fit in better, a bit like the CBeebies launch promo in 2002.

You're forgetting it's still the Easter holidays in some places
