Children's programming should be returned to weekend mid mornings on these channels instead of the dross of never ending cookery-come-waffle shows like on Channel 4 on Sundays for 3 hours at a stretch. There used to be fabulous 3 hour weekend children's TV live shows.
I know it's not under the OFCOM remit but I also strongly believe it was wrong to put Blue Peter on the CBBC channel. I think it should have been a special case and cherished in the 5pm BBC1 slot it held.
I think it got rubbish ratings then. It wasn’t helped by the fact it had been moved earlier to accommodate The Weakest Link after Neighbours moved.
But there is something to be said for some
Children’s programmes on main channels.
Adults who would normally stay clear of CBBC and CITV might find something of interest.
Only Ch5 really does this now.
