The BBC is introducing the Teletubbies to Burma as it launches three of its pay-TV channels in the country.

Young viewers in Burma will be able to watch In The Night Garden, Teletubbies and Mister Maker on the pre-school channel CBeebies, while sci-fi drama Doctor Who and The Graham Norton Show will be broadcast on BBC Entertainment.

A third channel, BBC World News, will feature 24-hour news.

The announcement follows David Cameron becoming the first serving UK prime minister to visit the country, which became independent from Britain in 1948, when he flew to Burma in April.
