The Children’s Media Foundation


The Children's Media Foundation is a future-facing organisation which also embraces the history of children's media in the UK.

The CMF has gathered experts in its Archive Group who have comprehensive knowledge  of the children's television archive and its associated history.  We intend to grow this group, with expertise across all media and would welcome contact from people interested in contributing:

The CMF Archive Group will explore lost and "orphaned" archive and work with other organisations to locate and restore content. 

The first volume in the BFI Children's Film Foundation collection - "London Tales"

The CMF also has its own archive, consisting of a unique collection of films and TV series featuring children as leading characters, originally made by the our predecessor organisation , the Children's Film and Television Foundation, originally the Children's Film Foundation.  The full list of titles can be explored in detail in the CFTF Catalogue and clips of CFF films can be seen at the CFandTF channel on YouTube

The CFF/CFTF Archive is held and maintained by the BFI.  Titles in the catalogue are gradually being released on DVD and can be purchased from the BFI Filmstore.
