CBeebies updates its summer bedtime schedule

Aiming to keep things fresh, fun yet comforting for very young children, the CBeebies channel has moved a few favourites around in the 6pm-7pm “Bedtime Hour”.

Back is old favourite Charlie and Lola, followed by 64 Zoo Lane, In the Night Garden and the CBeebies Bedtime Stories.

cbeebies 2011First broadcast on CBeebies in 2005, Charlie And Lola is based on the award-winning books by Lauren Child and follows the everyday cartoon adventures of inquisitive little sister Lola and her ever-patient brother Charlie.

And 64 Zoo Lane takes viewers on an adventurous tour of the globe as seven-year-old Lucy catches up with the animated antics of her myriad animal friends including Herbert the Warthog, Georgina the Giraffe and Isobel the Flamingo.

“We know that the bedtime hour is an important part of families’ evening routines and we’re sure that children will be delighted to settle down with some familiar friends as they prepare for bedtime,” said controller of CBeebies, Kay Benbow.

It’s possible to catch up on all CBeebies programmes at any time via the special CBeebies iPlayer.
