I ended up babysitting today and I hadn’t realised it was the BBC summer social which is the new name for CBBC Live apparently. So we ended up watching the mash up summer social special. At the end they said they would be back for a new series in the new year. I guess this means no more mash up this autumn. Is it being replaced? Is cracker jacks moving to a Saturday?

Not sure if this will be of any interest to anybody here.

Paulsen/Ottestad/Wilkie - Children's BBC

This is just a bad composite of a low quality clip of the start of the ident mixed in with the end credits theme stolen from this video.

Interesting - I ripped that YouTube video years ago to have that closer in my collection. Seems like the holy grail (i.e. a totally clean version of that closer) hasn't been discovered then...

Afraid that’s all it probably is. Clearing out old USBs I thought I’d share it. Listening back properly that’s what it sounds like.

The You Tube clip itself would be entirely clean if Toby Anstis had shut up earlier! Very Happy

It is interesting that the suite of music was used for "Children's BBC Two" back in 1989/1990ish, then brought back and remixed when the original 1991 relaunch music was pulled off air after about 6 months.

Spotted this reported on the Express & Star which doesn't seem to have been picked up by any mainstream news provider apart from the Metro and a BBC Breakfast tie in link for the Express:




Children’s TV channel CBBC has caused online debate after it ranked their popular shows, in a tier ranging from “legend” to “hmmm”.

Among the top shows CBBC picked were game show 50/50, series Dick And Dom In Da Bungalow, and Horrible Histories. Ranking worst were Dennis The Menace and children’s news programme Newsround.

Posting the diagram to Twitter, the channel asked: “Did we get it right?”
