Grange Hill to end

From the CBBC website:
Grange Hill, one of the longest-running kids' programmes ever, is ending.
The show, which has been on BBC1 for a whopping 30 years, will finish after the 31st series later this year.

Grange Hill is seen as an important kids' programme because it's dealt with some really serious issues over the years - like drugs, Aids and bullying.

A CBBC spokesperson said: "CBBC is bidding a fond farewell to Grange Hill after 30 fantastic years... the gates will close for the last time."

"Of course it's sad to say goodbye to such a much loved institution. The lives of children have changed a great deal since Grange Hill began and we owe it to our audience to reflect this."
