Planed Plant ("Children's Planet") was a strand of Welsh-language television programming for children broadcast by S4C. It first aired on 1 November 1982.

Background[edit]

Planed Plant included imported animated programmes such as Yu-Gi-Oh!, Sabrina, Horseland and Dennis and Gnasher are dubbed into Welsh. It' also featured a number of Welsh-produced programmes. Uned 5, the channel's flagship youth magazine show, was often introduced by Planed Plant until April 2005 when the programme moved to a new prime-time slot.

Until 26 October 2007 production of Planed Plant was in-house. This was replaced by a service from independent production company Boomerang. As part of the changes, the previous presentation team (Alex Jones, Mari Grug, Alun Williams) were replaced by a new team of announcers/presenters. Newcomers Geraint Hardy and Meleri Williams began presenting the 4-6pm strand for older children (Planed Plant). Williams left the presentation strand after eleven months and was replaced by Lois Cernyw and Tudur Phillips.

Planed Plant was shown on S4C weekdays between 16.00 & 17.00 on analogue and 16:00 & 18:00 on digital. In 2010, S4C replaced it with a similar children's block called Stwnsh.

Slot Meithrin on 17 September 1990 until 9 October 1998, Planed Plant (pre school version) on 14 October 1998 until December 2001 and Planed Plant Bach ("Small Children's Planet"), the services for nursery age children, were replaced by Cyw ("Chick") on 23 June 2008.[1]
