      TERRY ON TELLY -- TIMES TWO!

      A SPECIAL WOSSNAME ANNOUNCEMENT FOR UK VIEWERS AND OTHER INTERESTED
      PARTIES

      oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

      1) THE WORLDS OF FANTASY ON BBC 4, FEATURING TERRY PRATCHETT

      BBC 4 presents Through the Looking Glass, the final segment of its
      current three-part series The Worlds of Fantasy, on Wednesday 12th
      March 2008 at 9pm -- in other words, this coming Wednesday.

      According to BBC 4's website, the programme will be "looking at how
      in the last ten years, fantasy has been one of the biggest forces in
      popular culture, across all media from books to interactive computer
      games. Terry Pratchett explains the allure of Tolkien's Lord Of The
      Rings, and Michael Moorcock explains how Fantasy was influenced by
      60s drugs culture and was part of underground cultures way of
      looking at the world."

      Also contributing to this hour-long programme are "Neil Gaiman,
      China Mieville, Michael Moorcock, Phillip Pullman, Lemmy and a host
      of fantasy fans."

      DigiGuide's synopsis claims that the programme "tells how, in the
      last ten years, fantasy has been one of the biggest forces in
      popular culture, conquering every media from books to interactive
      computer games. It also asks whether fantasy is pure escapism or if
      it has always been another, more sophisticated way of reflecting the
      world, while exploring the work of one of the giants of the genre,
      Terry Pratchett."

      Through the Looking Glass will re-air at midnight on the 12th and at
      02.30 on Thursday the 13th.

      The BBC's iPlayer site will apparently have this programme available
      for watching and downloads for the week following -- assuming, of
      course, you live in a region that can receive BBC broadcasts!

      2) THE COLOUR OF MAGIC: AIRING ON SKY FOR EASTER!

      For those of us who couldn't attend the special premiere of The
      Colour of Magic last week, the good news is that it will definitely
      be broadcast on Sky TV over Easter!

      The Mob Films' adaptation of The Colour of Magic/The Light Fantastic
      will be shown in two parts: on Easter Sunday, 23rd March, and Easter
      Monday, 24th March.

      At the moment, exact broadcast times are yet to be confirmed, but
      the showings will be between 7pm and 9pm each of the two nights.
      Don't forget to check your programme guide nearer to the broadcast
      dates, and make sure your Omniscopes are in good working order and
      that you have plenty of banged grains and other suitable
      refreshments ready!

      In the meantime, The Colour of Magic's Facebook page can be found at

      ONE on Sunday 16th March between 4:30pm and 5:30pm. Viewers can sign
