Planed Plant ("Children's Planet") was a strand of Welsh-language television programming for children broadcast by S4C. It is similar to CBBC & CITV

Although it included such imported animated programmes as Yu-Gi-Oh! and Sabrina, dubbed into Welsh, Planed Plant 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.

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.


Continuity presenters in the past include:

Revamped service[edit]

On Friday 26 October 2007, in-house production of Planed Plant ceased and was replaced by a service produced by independent production company Boomerang the following Monday.

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.
