One Media IP has acquired the rights to children entertainer's large library of Sooty programmes

Children's television favourite Sooty is to move to a new home after the rights to a large library of programmes featuring the puppet were sold.

The glove-puppet bear and his friends, Sweep the dog and panda Soo, are being bought by One Media IP, a Buckinghamshire-based acquirer of music and video rights.

The rights are being sold by Richard Cadell, the children's entertainer who has appeared alongside Sooty since 1999.

The company will have exclusive control of a variety of classic Sooty content, including eight TV shows presented by Sooty's creator, Harry Corbett.

The shows date back to the original Sooty episodes of the 1950s, all the way through to the 70s, including The Sooty Olympics and Sooty's Birthday.

One Media also has the rights for The Sooty Radio Show and a feature-length special »
