I live outside the UK, and these kinds of DVDs are the only way I can treat my daughter to Cbeebies. It's 2,5 hours of fun, although I don't let her watch the hole thing in one go, just one or two episodes at a time and my 3 year old loves it. Good quality DVD (picture and content, of course), with the right amount of education and fun blended together. My little one gets introduced to British accents, culture and weather (almost in every episode there's someone trying to convince us that the weather is 'scorching hot', while wearing long sleeved shirts that are flapping in the wind). The best part? We don't have to be introduced to the ads! Pity there are no 'I can cook' or 'Mr maker' though, I love those shows.
