CBBC gets new controller


by David Allen

The BBC has appointed a new head of the children’s channel CBBC, Damian Kavanagh, who is currently in charge of planning and scheduling for daytime and currently produces programmes like Escape to the Country, Hospital Heroes and The Unsellables.

CBBC is different type of channel as not only is it a kids’ channel, it is a digital channel available on satellite.

The viewers are different as they are used to a certain style of TV and it is this that the new controller will have to get a handle on.

The channel already has some excellent content in the pipeline for the next year, such as Tracy Beaker in Beaker’s Back; a second series of Richard Hammond’s Blast Lab; The Sarah Jane Adventures; and Simon Nye’s adaptation of Just William, so there is a good base to work from.
