Late news

For those dismayed and/or intrigued by the plight of Mark Speight, children’s TV presenter, a sign that the Beeb are taking matters seriously.  While news broadcasters focus on the cancellation of tomorrow’s repeats of SMart on the CBBC channel they seem to have ignored the fact that the Beeb acted quickly today and cancelled SMarteenies on CBeebies at 4 pm to replace it with Barnaby Bear.  Fortunately it wasn’t the one where Barnaby attempts to block the building of a by-pass, that despite my general environmental concerns, seems to over-egg it for pre-schoolers.  The cancellation of SMarteenies means that BIzi Lizi of fingerpainting fame (and available on youtube here) is not on our screens at the moment.  Something must be done about this immediately.  Perhaps all the bits with Mark and the boring bloke who occasionally dresses like a postman can be excised to allow Bizi Lizi and Kirsten and the puppet dog that looks like the one off the Fraggles to remain on screen.
