All programs will be dubbed into classical Arabic and will be broadcast on JCCTV and Baraem TV in early 2013.

Commenting on the deal, Rashed Al Qurese, Acting Director of Sales and Media Rights, JCC said: "Both JCC and BBC have a strong tradition of providing quality entertainment to their audiences. This new selection of creative and intelligent series will expand on our schedule of programming that children will love and parents will trust."

Natasha Hussain, Territory Manager Middle East & Africa, BBC Worldwide added: "This deal further builds on the strong relationship we have with Al Jazeera Children's Channel. We have a real breadth of engaging and informative programming in our Children's catalogue so it's great to see some of our exciting live-action drama and documentary content such as MI High and Deadly 60 licensed by the channel for the first time."

Programming includes original wildlife documentaries such as Deadly 60 and Deadly 360, and the natural history children's series Andy's Wild Adventures. Other shows include Leonardo “ the exploits of young Leonardo Da Vinci and MI High, an adventure comedy about a division of teen spies. Animated comedy shows include Me and My Monsters; a comedy show combining puppets and live action, and In The Night Garden, a televisual representation of a nursery rhyme picture book for preschoolers on Baraem TV.

Another new show is Baby Jake, a live action/animation series featuring a nine-month old baby living in a windmill with his parents and ten other children. The selected programming also includes The Adventures of Abney and Teal “ animated adventures of two friends, in the middle of the big city.
JCC continues to provide responsible and entertaining content in-house as well as from international providers to ensure the channel remains as the preferred channel of choice in Arab homes everywhere while upholding Arabic values and culture.
