his pack is an amalgamation of four CBeebies-related packs containing festive- or seasonal-themed versions of shows. I uploaded these to another site in 2006 and 2007 and three of the four were subsequently uploaded to TTOKTV (although the 2006 pack was dead at the time of writing). Hopefully this represents a veritable smörgåsbord of magical TV for the younger members of the family (0-6 years old), and perhaps even those of us of an older disposition, in plenty of time for Yule. I have been informed in the past two years that these are utterly invaluable in buying adults some peace and quiet over the holiday period.
As a bonus, I have included the CBeebies pantomime from five years ago (Oh Yes It Is!) as well as a few CBeebies oddities such as the annual Christmas song from the last three years as well as last year's Christmas Show. None of these has been uploaded before.
I am sure that there will be some new material this year so be on the look out for a 2008 pack around Christmas time.
A warm and possibly pine-scented round of applause to the site staff for the continued upkeep of TTOKTV.
A heartfelt thank you to any of you that have downloaded my CBeebies torrents in the past year and taken the time to press the thanks button and/or leave a message of appreciation. For my part, it is greatly and sincerely appreciated and frankly keeps me torrenting when I would otherwise have given up in the last year due in no small part to the time and effort involved not least in preparing the descriptions (remember an .nfo is not just for Christmas!) in which I increasingly take great pride.
Wishing you an early but nevertheless Merry Christmas no matter which of the four curves of the globe you find yourselves in.
About the shows:
All information taken from the 'Grown-ups' webpages of the CBeebies section of the BBC site (see http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/grownups/about/programmes/index.shtml) with the exception of Postman Pat, where Wikipedia was my friend (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Postman_Pat) since the appropriate CBeebies 'Grown-ups' entry now focuses on the new Special Delivery Service show rather than the older Postman Pat show, which these episodes belong to.
"Balamory is a drama with human characters who interact with each other and the viewer. Whilst the characters are extrovert and colourful, there is a strong sense of reality in everything they do which is backed up by the use of real children and real events. A new story is told every day and reaches its conclusion over the programme's twenty minute duration. Within the narrative are songs to entertain and sing along with, inspirational activities with makes and games and informative events. Filmed on a real island location, Balamory gives children a strong sense of place. They are able to learn where everyone lives and have the island's town mapped out in their head. The Balamory website is a safe, fun and familiar environment for young children to explore and enjoy. The site encourages children to be creative and to experiment, using their imaginations to develop many skills."
Bill And Ben
"'Bill and Ben' is set outdoors and provides opportunities for children to find out about the weather and seasons, as well as growing things. During the early years children are developing the knowledge, skills and understanding that help them to make sense of the world in which they live. Bill and Ben encourages curiosity and creativity as children are motivated to think about the natural environment in which the programme is set. 'Bill and Ben' is a revival of a very old favourite. Most grandparents, if not parents, will remember this from their own childhood. All the characters are the same, with a few new additions. Humour plays a large part, and situations are character led, with Bill and Ben playing the part of tricksters, who sometimes come off worst!"
"Boo likes to hide and disguise himself in everything from a castle to a pirate ship. As you look for Boo you will also find his friends Sleeping Bear, Laughing Duck and Growling Tiger who accompany him on his many adventures. Boo has his very own page on the CBeebies website where children can colour in Boo and his friends, play Fling a Fish and make a Boo collage."
"Doodle Do is a puppet series made by the same team behind The Storymakers. Up in the attic live Dib-Dab, Scribble and Stick who, helped by presenter Chris Corcoran, create wonderful makes for the pre-school audience to enjoy and leave them totally inspired to have a go themselves. In each episode Dib-Dab, Scribble, Stick or Chris have a 'Making Moment' and decide what they would like to 'Doodle Do', and this then forms the thrust of the narrative throughout the episode, culminating in a show or story at the end. Before they can start 'Doodle Doing' though, they need to collect some 'its' and 'bits' to make things with. Once they've finished 'Doodle Doing', it's time for the audience to have a go and we visit our 'Doodle Doing Friends' on location to see how they get on. Back in the attic Dib-Dab, Scribble and Stick have a look to see what their pet sandworms are doodling. Chris doesn't know about the sandworms but they live in an old chest in the attic. When the chest is opened we see the sandworms doodling in the sand. In the meantime, Chris is setting up for a performance which uses, or is inspired by, whatever they made earlier. The performance could be a story, a song, a rhyme, a show or even just them playing a game with what they've made. Before they go, they always remind us of their important 'Doodle Dos' and 'Doodle Don'ts' which are 'Doodle don't forget to tidy up' and 'Doodle do have fun doing it'."
"Finding out about the world, making discoveries and having new experiences is just what the Fimbles and all very young children enjoy doing. Within the programme, children are offered opportunities to make their own discoveries by using their basic skills and senses. Scenes of real-life experiences enable children to see their immediate world in a new light. Good use is made of appropriate questioning that encourages children to think about what they are viewing and engage in the process, rather than simple passive viewing. The friendly-faced costumed characters; Fimbo, Florrie and Baby Pom have instant appeal with their strong stripy colours and movements, which reflect the physical movements of the young child. They are joined by animated puppets: Roly Mo the mole, Rockit the frog, Bessie the bird and Ribble the chick, who take significant parts within the story line. They help to guide the child, causing them to think, consider and promote curiosity whilst viewing. The various sections of the CBeebies Fimbles website provide a link to the sections in Fimbles Valley, where the characters enjoy specific activities."
Pablo The Little Red Fox
"Join the curious and spirited Pablo as he leads his brother Pumpkin and sister Poppy into the adventures of a lifetime in their new city. Other characters include the cubs' parents, Rose and Red Fox, a dog named Baxter, a cat named Finbar, a frog called Fromage, a seagull called Gil and an owl named Madam Owl, who are all best friends."
"Postman Pat is a British stop-motion animated children's television series produced by Woodland Animations. It is aimed at pre-school children, and concerns the adventures of Pat Clifton, a postman in the fictional village of Greendale (inspired by the real valley of Longsleddale in Cumbria). Postman Pat was first screened on BBC1 in 1981. John Cunliffe wrote the original treatment and scripts, and it was directed by animator Ivor Wood, who also worked on The Magic Roundabout, Paddington Bear, and The Herbs. A second version of the series was made and shown from 2004, which expanded on many aspects of the original series. Each episode followed the adventures of Pat Clifton, a friendly country postman, and his "black and white cat" Jess, as he delivers the post through the valley of Greendale. Although he initially concentrates on delivering his letters, he nearly always becomes distracted by an issue of one of the villagers and is usually relied upon to resolve their problems. Notable villagers include the postmistress: Mrs. Goggins, Alf: a farmer, and the local handyman and inventor, Ted Glen. Postman Pat is set in the fictional British (North Yorkshire) village of Greendale and the town of Pencaster. Greendale is a large, busy village situated in the heart of the countryside. Running through the centre of the village is the High Street, home to Mrs Goggins Post Office and shop, an unofficial meeting house for the residents. Located on the edge of the village is the train station, home to the Greendale Rocket. Nisha Bains runs a popular café there while her husband Ajay runs a regular schedule on the Greendale Rocket to the nearby town of Pencaster. Pencaster is a large, bustling, modern town located within easy commuting distance for the villagers of Greendale. Situated on the waterfront, Pencaster is a hive of activity, boasting a market square in the centre surrounded by shops, houses, a large train station, state of the art buildings and a boat jetty. In early episodes of the show from the mid-90s, the area is referred to as Garner Bridge. Garner Bridge is in Greendale. For example, in the episode Postman Pat and the Suit of Armour, the village Post Office is referred to as "Garner Bridge Post Office". Music for the original 1981 series was by Bryan Daly, who wrote a number of
songs including the well-known theme tune. For the 2003 series, pop writer Simon Woodgate (of echobass) scored the show and wrote new songs, including a new
opening and closing theme "What's in his bag?". The theme tune "Postman Pat & His black and white cat" was originally sung by Ken Barrie for the old series."
" Take a bathroom, take some bath toys, take some water and the fun is set to happen! Bath time can be a special time for children when they have the time to relax, play with bath toys, act out stories, dream and do some splashing. This programme has just the right contents to set the imagination alive! The characters are all endearing, but very different. Each child is bound to have their own particular favourite. The imaginative sequences, which begin (and end) with the magic words "if only", often result in the character finding themselves in a situation they thought they had wanted. Once in this wished-for scenario, they realise that life back in their bath time home, with their friends, is what they really want after all."
" The scene is set in a library where, after it closes at midnight, the magical Wordsworth family and puppets, Jelly and Jackson, pour objects and ideas into a story-making machine. This machine always needs the magical ingredient, and this is - imagination! The programme encourages children to develop a love of books. Parents/carers might like to take children to their local library, look at books and magazines together, or invent their own lively stories."
"Teletubbies, created by Ragdoll for the BBC, is a part of life for children all over the world. Set in magical Teletubbyland, Teletubbies uses bright colours, engaging stories and fun games, to which even the youngest child can relate. Based on a fundamental understanding of how very young children develop, Teletubbies allows young children to feel happy and secure. From babies to toddlers, children love Teletubbies and Teletubbies love children. Their appeal lies in their unique ability to create an environment within which children can have fun and grow with confidence.
"The word 'Tikkabilla' is derived from the name of a game played in parts of India which is similar to hopscotch and the programme takes a hopscotch approach to its format, hopping on stepping stones from story to song to visiting a real place. There are six presenters and each episode is presented by two of them. Tamba, the puppet, is in every episode, joining in with the fun. Tamba plays the surrogate child asking those tricky and naive questions. The style of the programme is inclusive and interactive, directly addressing the viewing child, making links with their own experience and encouraging them to join in wherever possible. The eight presenters are Justin, Lorna, Paul, Sarah-Jane, Simon, Amit, Veejay and Toni. They sing and dance, tell stories and perform rhymes, make and decorate things. They lead your child through the 'window on the world' with entertaining, easy-to-understand commentary. They talk directly to your child in an engaging and chatty tone but occasionally take on the role of parent to Tamba. The Tikkabilla house is brightly coloured, flexible and comfortable with different levels and areas. There's a cosy attic for story telling, a make table, swing seats, somewhere for pets and a large performance area. The round, square and arched windows have been retained from the trusted 'Play School' series and provide a way into the real-world insert material.
The Tikkabilla Clock also builds on the original 'Play School' brand. In each episode the clock helps your child with time-telling skills and also provides visual clues to the story coming up with a rotating display of related items."
"'Tweenies' is set in a Playschool and deals with dilemmas, challenges and issues common to very young children, such as squabbling with friends, or not owning up. Story lines provide a non-threatening context within which such issues can be discussed and resolved simply. These characters move like real children; they laugh at the same things they do; sing the same songs; play the same games and see the world in the same way. The characters are well developed and children are able to predict what their responses might be. The mixture of story, song and creative activity provides excellent opportunities for children to learn through play. Music plays an important part in the programme and children are encouraged to join in with songs and actions. The Tweenies website reflects the themes from the many Tweenies programmes in its content, including Messy time, Story time, Song Time, Game Time and News Time."
