Tikkabilla was a UK children's television programme, shown on BBC1, BBC2 and on the CBeebies channel. The programme aims to educate pre-school children in an entertaining manner. The title "Tikkabilla" comes from the Punjabi word meaning "Hopscotch", a popular children's game. It was an exceptionally well loved children's television show. Each programme is introduced by two adults and a small dragon puppet named Tamba, who resembles Spyro the Dragon in colouration. Tamba serves as the programme's naive child; the programme's educational content is introduced as the presenters explain things to Tamba. Whilst Tamba appears in every episode, a team of presenters take it in turns to pair-up in each show. These presenters include Justin Fletcher, Sarah-Jane Honeywell, Paul Ewing, Simon Davies, Lorna Laidlaw, Veejay Kaur, Toni Fruitin and Amit Sharma and Beverley Hills. Tamba is performed by puppeteers Sue Eves who created the voice for Tamba; Alison McGowan and Katherine Smee. Sue Eves has also written many scripts for the programme. Beverley Hills also writes for the programme as well as writing for the sister show, The Story Makers.
A reality series that follows some of the most affluent women in the country as they enjoy the lavish lifestyle that only Beverly Hills can provide.

Majokko Tickle, also known as Magical Girl Tickle or Magical Girl Chickle, is a 1970s magical girl manga and anime by Go Nagai. Unlike Nagai's earlier Cutie Honey, Majokko Tickle is closer to the more traditional mold of magical girl anime such as Mahoutsukai Sally, and is probably more suitable for young children than most of Nagai's other works. The anime television series was produced by Toei Company Ltd., with the actual animation produced by various other studios, including Nippon Sunrise. It consisted of 45 episodes and was aired across Japan on TV Asahi from March 6, 1978, to January 29, 1979. It brought the magical girl genre of anime back to Japanese TV screens for the first time since Toei Animation's Majokko Megu-chan aired its final episode in September 1975. Some episodes were scripted by Masaki Tsuji, a longtime friend of Nagai's and head writer on his earlier series Devilman, Dororon Enma-kun, and Cutey Honey. Go Nagai also wrote the lyrics to the opening theme song. Majokko Tickle is notable for being the first magical girl series to feature a "double hero". Reportedly the series was inspired in part by the popularity of Pink Lady, a female pop duo who were known for performing their songs and dancing in perfect unison and who sold millions of records in Japan during the late 1970s. Pink Lady had an enormous audience of young girls, and Majokko Tickle was considered an opportunity to capitalize on the similarity. In fact, one of Pink Lady's hits was featured in one episode, in which Tickle and her "sisters" Tiko and Hina watch the duo perform the song on TV.
