Brand new episodes of Waybuloo to launch new-look Bedtime Hour on CBeebies

CBeebies is refreshing its early evening schedule for the Autumn, which will see the addition of new episodes of Waybuloo to the Bedtime Hour.

From Monday 3 October, the popular Piplings will be seen at 6pm delighting their audience by taking children on a journey into the world of Nara where the Piplings practise their unique Yogo moves helping little ones wind down before bedtime.

Waybuloo will be followed by the regular bedtime programming of In The Night Garden with The Bedtime Story drawing the early evening schedule to a close.

Waybuloo was first shown on CBeebies in 2009 and the series is unique in its exploration of emotions and relationships, through stories of co-operation, friendship and enjoyment. Waybuloo takes place in the world of Nara – a land of happiness, laughter and friendship that's home to the Piplings – Yojojo, Lau Lau, De Li and Nok Tok.

Controller of CBeebies, Kay Benbow, says: "We are always looking at ways to keep our schedule fresh and interesting for our young viewers without causing too much disruption to routines .

"We know that the bedtime hour is an important part of families' evening routines and we're sure that children will be delighted to settle down with some familiar friends as they prepare for bedtime."

Fans of current bedtime favourites Charlie And Lola will still be able to catch up with the popular show every Friday at 5pm and weekends at 9.15am on CBeebies. 64 Zoo Lane will be taking a break from the schedule and will return in 2012.

And, as ever, parents and children can catch up with their favourite programmes at any time through the CBeebies iPlayer.
