A New Series of 64 Zoo Lane starts on 29th October

CBeebies is refreshing the Bedtime Hour for Winter to include even more of our best-loved shows to snuggle up with before bed. We understand how important the Bedtime Hour can be as part of many families' routines, so we want to let you know what the changes are and when they're happening.

From Sunday 28th October at 6pm, "The Adventures of Abney & Teal" will move into the Bedtime Hour for the first time, with brand new episodes airing Sunday to Thursday. There will be a chance to catch up with favourite episodes on Friday and Saturday too.

Also from Sundays to Thursdays we're very excited to be able to bring you a new series of "Sixty Four Zoo Lane" at 6:10pm. We understand that Fridays and Saturdays can feel different as part of the weekend, so with this in mind we welcome back special treat-size "Waybuloo" to the Bedtime Hour on Friday and Saturday.

Familiar faces remain in Bedtime, with "In The Night Garden" and the "CBeebies Bedtime Story", as always at the end of the day. We do hope your little ones will enjoy the new line-up and that this mix will offer something for both older and younger viewers.

    The whole point of the bedtime hour is that it's the same every day. Weekday or weekend. Now this concept is gone.

    What a joke! Children need routine, this schedule is all over the place. Why not show Waybuloo, In the night garden and bedtime story as before with Abney and Teal on just before Bedtime Hour. Also please let there be some new bedtime stories. You need to start listening to parents.

    Couldn't agree with the sentiments above more. The whole point is that the day doesn't matter to children this age, it's all about the routine. Will miss Charlie & Lola too as this is a favourite. Just means we'll abandon CBBeebies completely and use DVDs instead. Not ideal but only way to get consistency. It would be nice if you actually did some research in to what parents & more importantly children want rather than change for changes sake.

    This is pretty annoying.
    My daughter is going to be completely out of her routine now..
    for starters the programmes need to stay the same no matter what day of the week it is & second why put waybuloo on? its rubbish!
    My Daughter loves Charlie & Lola.
    just means we will be switching to DVDs!!
