Here at Oh Mammy HQ, we have been lucky enough to receive a preview of a brand new CBeebies programme coming to your screens soon. Our littlest one loves the show and has a huge fans of history we adults in this house adore it too.

Mike the Knight is a wonderful new series, galloping on to your screens on the 31st of October at 4.05pm*. This brand new series contains a whopping 52 episodes of glorious Computer Generated animation. It brings the excitement of medieval times to the modern pre-schooler. In each episode, viewers are transported to an action packed world filled with marvellous mission and wonderful characters.

The star of the show Mike is an energetic, cheeky young knight in training, driven by a passion to help others and to be the best knight hecan be. With his father, the King away exploring faraway lands, his mother Queen Martha has put Mike in charge ofhelping her protect their Kingdom of Glendragon.

Determined to do the best job he can, Mike's rallying cry is 'Be a knight, do it right'. Mike learns the power of responsibility and how to do things the right way. With the help of his Big Book for Little Knights and his closest friends, the would-be hero rises to the challenge of each episodes' mission. His friends include Sparkie and Squirt, a pair of friendly dragons and his trusty steed, Galahad. Mike also has a sister, Evie a would-be wizard in training. Evie and Mike combines their talents to combat each new challange.

Each episode is introduced by the resident bard, Fernando who acts as the storyteller. Incredibly funny, his witty ditties begin and end each episode on a humourous note.

This chivarlous series, airing every day next week, is set to send young viewers on an enchanted voyage of discovery.

Mike the Knight is a co-production between HIT Entertainment and Nelvada Studio. The series was created by Alexander Bar (Lunar Jim) and the head writer is Marc Seal (Bob the Builder).

Not to give too much away and spoil the fun, the first episode entitled Mike the Knight and the Smiley Treasure is a great opening episode. Mike thinks that he will be better at guarding a bunchof bananas without the help of his dragon friends. But as the bananas go missing one by one; Mike has to learn that everything is easier when you accept a little help from your friends.

We hope that you will tune in on Monday at 4:05PM and enjoy the series as much as we have.
