CBBC is returning to the 1980s, with a new series of live Saturday morning shows.
Cheryl Taylor, CBBC controller, commented: “The presentation team are the beating heart of CBBC and their expanded role on Saturday mornings to deliver a live extravaganza will cause great excitement for our audience. We have been using new technology to connect with the 6-12s for some time now and I’m proud to be in a position to offer unique live participation opportunities which will make CBBC an even more special destination on Saturdays.”
Airing from September 2017, the BBC said that Live & Dangerous would continue the tradition of Going Live!, Saturday Superstore, and Multi-Coloured Swap Shop.
The 12 x 120 minute shows will be produced by BBC Children’s Presentation, with Jamie Wilson as series producer, and Ian France as executive producer.
The presenting line-up is yet to be confirmed.
