My Boy Jack, the Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) television film recently broadcast in the UK, will be aired here in the US on PBS this spring. Masterpiece Classics has released their schedule (pdf here) for the early portion of the year, and “My Boy Jack” is set to air on the public television channel April 20. Also of interest on the schedule is “Cranford,” a mini series that stars Imelda Staunton (Professor Umbridge) and Michael Gambon (Professor Dumbledore) along with Dame Judi Dench. “Cranford,” which received much critical acclaim in the UK, is set to be broadcast on PBS May 4, 11, and 18th. You can learn more about this series via this link.

On a related note, the My Boy Jack DVD is now available for pre-order via our Cauldron Shop, as the DVD (already available in the UK) is set to be released here in the States on April 22. Finally, lucky residents of the UK can now purchase the “Ballet Shoes” DVD, starring Emma Watson and Richard Griffiths. Ballet Shoes was aired on the BBC over the Christmas holidays in the UK.

Thanks igo !
