Weekday afternoons on CBeebies have been given an injection of fun, with the launch of a brand new after-school programming block BIG FUN TIME, presented by CBeebies newest Australian hosts, Robbie and Duncan.

BIG FUN TIME is THE place to be for Australian kids after school with some of CBeebies' most popular programmes including ZingZillas, Numberjacks, I Can Cook, Charlie and Lola, Gigglebiz and Penelope K, by the way. The block airs weekdays from 3:00-7:00pm, appealing to siblings who can enjoy the programmes together.

Robbie and Duncan bring cheeky humour and imaginative play to BIG FUN TIME, appearing in short entertaining segments between programmes that will engage the kids and keep them laughing right through until dinnertime.

Deirdre Brennan, Director of Television, BBC Worldwide Australia said, "BIG FUN TIME offers a wonderful mix of comedy, quiz and educational programming that will appeal to young children and their parents. Australian families can sit down and enjoy watching together with no more fighting over the remote control. We are delighted to be working with new local talent Robbie and Duncan on this afternoon block and look forward to the touch of cheeky fun they bring to CBeebies each weekday afternoon."

CBeebies Australia is an advertising-free, safe environment for children. The channel's programming emphasises educational entertainment and is supported by the core BBC values to ensure it is consistently trustworthy, reliable and informative.
