CBBC on Choice[edit]

Cleanup[edit]

I have alerted members of WikiProject BBC to help with the cleanup. If it wasn't for the fact that the channel is a notable UK channel, it could be nominated for deletion in its current state. --tgheretford (talk) 22:36, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

I just think that the lists of programmes are unneccessary and unsuitable. That's why I added the templates, hopefully it can be brought up to scratch. Gammondog 22:46, 11 May 2007 (UTC)
My bigger worry is that there isn't much substance to the article, aside from the introduction, the lists are unencyclopedic (violating WP:NOT#DIR and WP:NOT#IINFO) and most of the text doesn't bear too much relevance, as well as no references to anything, violating WP:V and WP:RS. As I say, if it wasn't for the notability of the channel, it could be ripe for an AfD nomination. It needs a major cleanup, something I can't really do at this minute. --tgheretford (talk) 22:53, 11 May 2007 (UTC)
Although the article doesn't, without cleanup, some sections also fail WP:N, without cleanup and verifiable reliable sources. I have tagged the relevant sections with the {{importance-s}} template to aid cleanup. --tgheretford (talk) 22:58, 11 May 2007 (UTC)
I've made a couple of adjustments -- I've removed a couple of those tags, tho' -- not because I disagree with the sentiment, but because six plus tags on one page is a little overkill. Agree that the list should be removed. I think the most gaping omission is a 'History' section. The JPStalk to me 23:48, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

Launch date of the CBBC Channel and protecting the article[edit]

This is getting out of hand now! The CBBC CHANNEL launched on 11 February 2002. This article is about the CHANNEL NOT the programming block on BBC One, BBC Two and formerly on BBC Choice. There is a seperate article for the CBBC brand/strand on BBC One/Two. In my opinion, I think this article needs to be semi-protected to prevent the date changing. How does everyone else feel about it? Skytvfreak (talk) 20:51, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

I agree, we don't want to know about CBBC when it was on BBC one/BBC two that is why we looked it up in the first place. P.S Nearly everybody knows it aired in 2002 not 2007! Lavinder111 (talk) 17:47, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

CBBC ChannelCBBC (channel) – The term "CBBC Channel" is only used if there is ambiguity between it and the programming strand; common usage is "CBBC" (as in, "Tracy Beaker is on CBBC at 2pm", and even the BBC call it CBBC if they're clearly referring to the channel: q.v.

Cleanup 2011[edit]

Hi all, This page needs serious clean-up - having open links in the text is an early warning sign for me. There also needs to be some serious distinction between this page and the strand at CBBC. Rafmarham (talk) 14:35, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

I've only checked Data til' 2005 but I presume this is accurate for the Top 10 but if anyone wants to check before I get a chance to do so it would be appreciated. Wilbur2012(talk) 20:57, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

Viewing figures outdated[edit]

http://www.barb.co.uk/viewing/weekly-total-viewing-summary

The weekly audience reach is 4.5M, not the 300K in the opening paragraph. It feels likes the article predated the analog switchoff. 91.84.28.61 (talk) 23:10, 8 September 2013 (UTC)

The age range[edit]

The age range stated starts off as being for 6-12 year olds and changes to 4-12 year olds. We need to decide what age range we want.
