Help with Cbeebies birthday messages

33
Found 29th Jun 2009
Hello all.

It's our little ones 1st birthday tomorrow and our other sprog made a birthday card & sent it into Cbeebies so they can read it out on TV .

Thing is, we'd like to see it but as we're all at work/school we will miss it.

They get shown at 8am & 10:20am according to the website. We don't have sky+ and we got shut of our video recorder ages ago. Does anyone have any idea how we can get a recording of it.

It says on the website they don't issue recordings (fair enough I suppose).

It also says you can see the messages on interactive TV by pressing the red button when watching Cbeebies and then selecting birthdays but we've tried this and can't find it anywhere.

Ideas/help appreciated.

not sure it would be on there but could you watch again on i-player?? but hopefully someone can record for you :thumbsup:

can a member on the family or friend help you out, by recording it?

Yes you can record Cbeebies cards providing you are watching the cards being shown at the time, you just press the r button.

Problem is you can't preset it, as you can't guarantee you'll record the adverts or presenters between shows.

Do you know anyone with Sky+ nearby - a neighbour or family member. You can try getting someone to record it for you - but I don't know how you would manage to get a copy - you'd have to go to their house to view it!

good luck, they are on a loop if i remember so you might get lucky, hope they show it, we done the same years ago and they didnt :-(

iPlayer will have it for a week afterward, assuming it doesn't go belly-up. If all you want is to watch it would that do?

edit: seems to be much easier to find the 10:20am ones!

I work for nationwide in the day - they won't even listen to a radio in the office!

Not even sure if they will show the card. Our eldest daughter made it and sent it in about 6weeks ago. Then she told us yesterday!

Apparently, its got a photo of them on it along with squiggle-piggle or whatever from the night garden thing.:-D

Not to put a downer on it but it probably wont be shown, they get sent hundreds of the things and only show a small fraction.

Hope it is shown tho, good luck

Yeah we know this - a matter of luck I think but the chances are if we don't record it, they will show it and if we do, they won't!

Sods law i think its called

Did you have any luck with this?

Yes and no.

A top-notch, lovely A1 member on this site ( won't name her as she will shout but think large-eared creature avi and an excellent, well-travelled photographer) kindly recorded the messages for me. So success there.

Unfortunately, our card/message was not broadcast. Apparently it's a bit of luck of the draw.

Maybe next year.

PS - thanks Chesso! (oops!:oops:)

:oops: :oops: :oops:

i was wondering if it was read out..watched it ...never mind...maybe next year!
