2002 saw the launch of this dedicated channel, often referred to as 'the CBBC Channel' to distinguish it from the programming strands on BBC One and Two. In late 2012 those strands ended on One and Two for the last time.
Much of CBBC's programming is light drama, but comedies include the multi-award-winning sketch show Horrible Histories.
