BBC unveils Underground Ernie and Countryfile

BBC Magazines has unveiled plans for two launches, writes Rebecca West.

The first is the children's title Underground Ernie, which launches on April 4. BBC Magazines Bristol has also released details of an autumn launch for a print spin off of its TV programme, Countryfile.

Underground Ernie, borne out of the Cbeebies programme of the same name, is aimed at three-to-six-year olds, and encompasses Transport for London branding. Priced at £1.75, the magazine will be published every four weeks.

BBC Magazines Bristol is looking to recruit a full editorial staff for its Countryfile title. It will launch in October 2007 and aims to be a practical, people-centric lifestyle magazine covering all aspects of country life and green, sustainable living. It will include practical advice on how to enjoy the country.

Publishing director Andy Benham said: "There is a very obvious gap for a title that brings every aspect of country living together, and this is what Countryfile magazine will aim to do."
