NDR to cancel Sesame Street after 30 years!?! No, but as of August 4 they will discontinue the afternoon broadcast at 6pm, leaving only the early morning broadcast at 7:30. For families with working parents (like us!), TV in the morning is not an option, and cutting the afternoon broadcast is as good as cancelling the show altogether. Radio Hamburg (a private broadcaster, as opposed to the public NDR) has launched a campaign to save the afternoon broadcast. NDR claims that the Kinderkanal offers an alternative for children, but sorry, it's not Sesame Street, and it's a raw deal for Christopher. And for his parents.
