CBeebies Bedtime Hour (2002)

Concept and creative process

CBeebies, targeting pre-school children, was launched in 2002 simultaneously with the rebranded CBBC for older children. It broadcast in strands of programmes throughout the day from 6am until 7pm. ‘Bedtime Hour’ was the final programme of the day from 5.15pm which featured a bedtime story read by a well-known actor.
