Teletubbies to return with new episodes

The Teletubbies are to return with a new series - the first produced since 2001.

The BBC reports that it has ordered 60 new episodes of the show, featuring Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po, for CBeebies, the brand that it uses for programming aimed at children.

The series will be filmed on a replica set - instead of its original location in Warwickshire - and "enhanced by CGI" to give it a more "contemporary look".

Teletubbies ran for 365 episodes from March 1997 to January 2001 and became a worldwide phenomenon.
