The CBeebies channel was launched on 11 February 2002 alongside the CBBC channel, as a spinoff from the BBC’s children’s television strand. The first four shows to air on the channel were Teletubbies, Pingu, Binka, and Step Inside. CBeebies domestically broadcasts from 6 am to 6:58 pm, broadcasting 7 days per week, and as a result, it timeshares with fellow BBC channel BBC Four, which is on air after this channel goes off air for the day.

The station was joined in March 2007 by an audio CBeebies Radio, which broadcast for three hours each day on BBC Radio 7 until April 2011. CBeebies Radio, however, has continued as a feature on CBeebies’ website since 2013, and as a station on BBC Sounds broadcasting from 6 am to 10 pm. A magazine called CBeebies Weekly was first published in 2006.

Since March 2013, CBeebies has been carried by the British Forces Broadcasting Service, sharing a channel with BFBS Extra. CBeebies is also available in Ireland.

Management

In the UK, CBeebies is operated by the BBC Children’s and Education division and part of BBC North. The division is also responsible for CBBC and overall strategic responsibility for all of the BBC’s domestic services for children rests with the Director of Children’s and Education, Patricia Hildago Reina (since 2020).[10] The direction of the domestic CBeebies channel itself rested with Kay Benbow, the last Controller of the channel commissioning all CBeebies content across BBC television, online, interactive TV, and radio. She took over from the first controller Michael Carrington in 2010. In 2017 it was announced that the CBeebies controller post would close in December 2017 and all content for the CBeebies brand would be commissioned by a new, pan BBC Children’s role entitled Head of Content. In January 2021 it was announced that the decision would be reversing and a new Head of Commissioning and Acquisitions for preschoolers (0–6) would be appointed.

Internationally, CBeebies is owned by BBC Studios, which operate the brand.
