All the Diaries – Big Cat, Elephant, Big Bear – traditionally occupied the BBC1 7.00pm slot now occupied by The One Show. Stripping the Diaries across a single week proved very popular and helped build a sense of anticipation of ‘what happened next’ and provided continuity. But Series 2 – which aired during first two weeks in January – broke the mould, with the 5 programmes shown over two weeks rather than five consecutive days.
Will there be a Series 3? We are hoping that Elephant Diaries might be re-commissioned but at present there is a lot of uncertainty about the future of the Diaries.
