report in the BBC's internal magazine Ariel has confirmed that the BBC will not abolish strands of children's programming from BBC One or BBC Two until after Christmas.
The BBC announced its plans to move children's programming to CBBC and CBeebies as part of its Delivering Quality First (DQF) cost-cutting exercise earlier this year, in a bid to reduce repeat fees. Rather than simulcasting the CBBC channel to avoid repeat fees, BBC One will schedule additional daytime shows. BBC Two will air "factual repeats"
The move was initially expected to take place to co-incide with completion of the digital switchover next month, when all households would be able to access the children's channels.
