I've heard the government are going to sell cbeebies. Put adverts in, and basically sell it down the river.

So grab the pitch forks!

You don't seem to have actually read anything about this for yourself. Maybe this will help?

Ive often wondered when some sort of violent revolution would happen...
I did not think anyone would try to start it over CBeebies!

It takes CBeebies to start a revolution, really?

CBeebies grin I thought we'd riot over the NHS being sold off but I suppose CBeebies is a decent enough reason, I grew up on those shows, can't imagine a childhood without it

Well what about making it a crimes offence to take your kids out of school!

Noooo not Cbeebies.

Commercial companies don't make much children's programming because its not commercially viable - particularly as more and more adverts are banned-so I don't think its likely to be sold off.

However if the BBC becomes a subscription service it might not be able to afford to make childrens programmes or those made will be less good quality

I thought cbeebies did very well out of flogging the programmes abroad?

The culture secretary better not have been having relationships with anyone else with a 'past' that would salaciate the red top paper then.
