BEEB was a short-lived, weekly, children's magazine centred around the BBC's most popular programmes at the time of its publication. It was created as a competitor to ITV's Look-in magazine. It lasted 20 issues between January 29th 1985 and June 11th 1985. There was no announcement in the last issue, or any resolution to the ongoing comic serials.

Typical contents

#"One By One". This followed the popular zoo vet series, based on the David Taylor books.
#"Grange Hill". These were specially written stories, with much better artwork (though black and white) than appeared in the annuals. Each issue's Grange Hill comic was 3 pages long.
#"The Tripods". These were very well drawn stories, partly in colour on three pages. Drawn by John M. Burns []
#"Bananaman", in colour, on a single page. These have recently been reprinted in The Dandy, the third comic that Bananaman appeared in, after Nutty and BEEB, and before The Funday Times.
#"The Family-Ness", in colour, on a single page.
#General articles about BBC programmes, usually children's shows, with frequent references to "Blue Peter", "Doctor Who" and "Grange Hill".
#Pin-ups of pop stars and other celebrities.
#Competitions and letters from the readers.
