Can you help me find a CBBC show?

Was the show broadcast on CBBC in the last 7 days? If it was, try the search box at the top of the page or search by A-Z if you know the first letter of the show. We can only bring you shows that were on television in the last 7 days.

Still can't find your CBBC show? We need permission from the people who make and appear in a show to make it available to you. If we don't have this then we're not allowed to put the show in BBC iPlayer for CBBC. We're working on this bit though.

When I watch a show it keeps stopping with a spinning circle appearing in the middle, can you help me out?

Ask a grown up to help you if you're not sure but read on if you want more info...

Your computer has a network connection to access the internet. If your connection gets the hiccups the video will pause and the spinning circle appears. If this keeps happening, try again later when your connection may be feeling better.
