The Children’s Media Foundation (CMF)


The Children's Media Foundation embraces the distinguished and much-loved history of children's content in the UK.

Some CMF supporters have comprehensive knowledge of the children's television archive and its associated history.  Contact us if you are interested in contributing:

The CMF works with other organisations to locate and restore content of significance to the history of children's media in the UK. 

London Tales - the first of the BFI Children's Film Foundation collection

The CMF's own archive is a unique collection of films and TV series featuring children in the leading roles, made by the our predecessor organisation, the Children's Film and Television Foundation (originally the Children's Film Foundation).

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

The complete archive can be explored in detail in the CFTF Catalogue and clips from the films can be seen on the CFandTF channel on YouTube.


Our other predecessor was the campaign organisation Save Kids' TV.
