BBC Children’s TV – The BBC Children’s TV strand
Last week, BBC Worldwide announced the creation of the BBC Children’s TV strand, the programme which will develop and commission BBC content based on the views of young people. It’s fair to say that Taganov, a producer/director with experience in media production, has been at the heart of the process.
At the start of the Guardian’s interview with Taganov, he said “There is a big gap between what kids know about TV and how kids actually behave – the world they are allowed to watch”. He further described the new strand as a “social experiment” and said that he was excited about the “challenge” of using the experience of young people not just in terms of the content but also the people behind the content.
Taganov, in the interview, also said that he and his team had already started working on a range of programmes with the BBC, with “a very strong focus on children and families”. This included “a programme where we’ve been filming two sisters and their parents”.
He also said that he wanted to work further with young people by creating programmes within the BBC that would explore gender, ethnicity or sexual identity issues in more depth. He added that he wanted to “help young people be more aware and more conscious of the worlds they inhabit”.
Asked specifically about what kind of programming would be appropriate for young people, Taganov said that he had a “strong suspicion” that, “[they] don’t have that sort of knowledge” and that the strand “is about them being aware”.
He added that he and his team are “committed to being as fair as possible” with regards to the content but that they want to “go further” in terms of age and “gender”.

There is no more important person in the UK than the head of BBC Children, David Puttnam, the man who turned the BBC into the most talked-about, most talked-about institution in the world and the man who became Britain’s public broadcaster the day he was born. Yet the BBC has the reputation of being one of the most dysfunctional television and radio companies in the world. In fact BBC has always been more of an institution than a corporation. In the 1990s it went through a period of great turmoil. From a young man in the 1930s, when he joined the BBC to the day of his retirement in 1996, David Puttnam had seen the potential of television and radio as vehicles for social change.

Today with the BBC, as with all other great television and radio companies of the past, there are many things which David Puttnam would like to change for the better. He would like to return the BBC to an institution which truly is one of the nation’s most influential, with a strong focus on children.
David Puttnam’s favourite program was ‘The Voice’. ‘The Voice’ was the voice that the BBC used to try and sell everything to the audience. With David Puttnam it was a show that was created to get a certain number of kids to watch, and to get that number to continue to watch, so as to keep people interested throughout the whole of the series. The show was designed to take the audience away, so that they could go out into the world, to be the child of the person they were listening to the voice of.

For ‘The Voice’ to remain popular it was necessary that it should be kept alive and popular for the whole of the next few years. In the early 1950s, with the rise of the youth culture movement, this was not easy.
The Head of Content Planning and Scheduling for the Disney Channels is CBeebies.
It must be noted that CBeebies’ Head of Content Planning and Scheduling for the Disney Channels is Chris ‘Spud’ Edwards, not a CBeebies employee. The following is a copy from: Spud’s article from CBeebies. Chris “Spud” Edwards”: I have been with CBeebies for quite a while, so the fact that I am part of “Head of Content Planning and Scheduling for the Disney Channels” is a bit of a surprise, but I get it. We are a part of the Disney channel family for over three years now, with my current role of Head of Content Planning and Scheduling being the longest I’ve been with the Channels. I spent the last summer planning what my goals were for the Channels going forward and now our work is about to begin. We have a pretty nice team with a lot of experience on the Channels, and that experience comes into play a lot with what we’re going to be doing this summer. With that, here’s a bit of information on how CBeebies came into existence. In my youth, Disney Channel was just called ‘Disney Channel’ and the channel was owned by a different company than what is now known as Disney. The Disney Channel was in its early days pretty much a ‘toy’ network on the Disney network. While the Disney Channel would have the highest rated television program in the country in a given week, the most popular channel was actually ABC (in the United States and Canada at one point), with a lot of programs that were top rated with the public. Disney was the network that the channel was on and the original owner of the Disney Channel, and the channel that Disney Channel would now be owned by, was Disney. When I was growing up, I did a lot of things that I regret, so I grew up watching a lot of Disney Channel. It was one of the first channels to actually have a library of programs that you could stream, so you wouldn’t have to find them online. It was the first channel that put a lot of original programming in, something that would be pretty hard for other channels to try to do in their early days.
