Rather than news about content being pulled from YouTube, we're pleased to report that BBC Worldwide and YouTube have announced they have renewed their global partnership for BBC Worldwide YouTube channels and short videos.

This extension means that the BBC's programming, such as "Doctor Who", "Top Gear" and "The Mighty Boosh", remains available to YouTube's online audience.

In addition, BBC Worldwide has debuted a new YouTube channel called "Explore" that has clips from BBC factual shows including "Amazon with Bruce Parry" and Louis Theroux series.

With a food channel already up and running, BBC Worldwide will also unveil dedicated channels for comedy and natural history clips and a US-only channel BBC America.
