Good morning. It’s Monday, October 4, 2010, and this is your first early morning Kids briefing.

BBC Worldwide, which is re-launching its channel websites, debuted the new international CBeebies ( website over the weekend.  The refreshed site will offer geographic-specific content in CBeebies territories including South Africa, Asia, and Australia, as well as local language content for Latin America and Poland.  The CBeebies site features a new look and home for the CBeebies bugs, a unique underwater world that is designed to be stimulating and fun for kids.  The home page is a submarine that features videos, promos, activities, and games, as well as show links, among other things.  Where the website is available it features a short animation that provides kids with an explanation of how the bugs made their way to the new environment.  The site also features parent-targeted area that provides information suggested developmental activities for parents to do with their kids from educational experts.  BBC Worldwide plans to unveil other refurbished channel pages for BBC HD, BBC Entertainment, BBC Lifestyle and BBC Knowledge in the coming months.

Kenn Viselman and his itsy bitsy Entertainment Company unveils plans to launch Millipede (, a kid-targeted “TV block” that will feature both live-action and animated programming, at the end of 2011.  To populate Millipede, Viselman and itsy bitsy are looking to producers/creators and students worldwide to submit preschool aimed short-form programming (15 seconds to 11 minutes).  The Millipede series is designed as a home for programming that may not “fit” into existing broadcast formats.  Viselman is currently in discussions with a number of international broadcast partners for the series.  Viselman recently produced the movie The Oogieloves and the Big Balloon Adventure and in pre-production two more features, The Oogieloves and The Big Family Adventure and The Oogieloves in The Big Holiday Adventure.
