Charmed and Five Children and It

Just watching Charmed on TV (Channel 5, not sure which series), wondered if anyone knows if the episode that Charisma Carpenter appears in will be on UK terrestrial TV in the near future.

During the break there was an advert for a film of Nesbit's Five Children and It, which looks to have been jazzed up a little to appeal to the usual special effects fans; the Psammead looks more like a turtle, the flying sequence has an airship, and so forth. Doubt I'll bother to see it in the cinema, but might be fun when it eventually comes on TV.

If anyone wants to read the original, incidentally, it's on my web site with the Forgotten Futures RPG:

Oddly enough I've been writing something for the next release of the RPG which harks back to FF8, so I've been working with Nesbit-related material all afternoon. Weird coincidence but true.
