Cheryl Taylor interview: Cbbc 'is where we want the BBC journey to begin'

9 December 2012 4:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The channel's new controller has a hard task – encouraging her young viewers to make the leap from digital channels to being fully fledged licence-fee payers

Cheryl Taylor has taken over as controller of the Cbbc channel at a time of historic change – on 21 December, regular weekday teatime children's programming will appear on BBC1 for the last time, with incoming soaps and gameshows ending a broadcasting tradition stretching back more than 60 years.

A post-school routine of switching on BBC1, familiar to generations of kids, will come to an end when the afternoon block of children's shows, including Newsround and Blue Peter, moves to the Cbbc channel.

It is the job of Taylor, who took up her new job in September after running BBC TV comedy, to ensure that children's programmes still reaches the nation's offspring. A little of it, she insists, will remain on BBC1 and BBC2 although it is unclear how much. »
