The Show

The show ran from 2001 to 2005. It started as a daily programme and then moved to Saturdays and Sundays. The show contained entertainment news and gossip and generally took a lighthearted view of the world of celebrity.


First the show Newsround Lite aired weekdays at 6:25pm on the CBBC Channel. But due to a lack of stories and not enough viewers it moved to Weekends at 3:50pm and it relaunched as Newsround Showbiz.
