I heard they were gearing up for this at Shepperton a while back but nothing beyond that - it's great to hear more :)

I like the sound of this - it should be good. But I reckon the 1980s series will still be the definitive version afterwards.

As a minimum, we must demand from SF that it be wiser than the world it speaks to.

That does look sound like it should be good. Thanks for the info.

I looked for the old series today in Dimple Records but could not find it.

I have it on dvd (R2)... no idea if it was ever released in Region 1.

I have heard of it before, so it is probably available somewhere.

BTW Himachil, my kids love your new avatar.

Never saw the original, but I've actually read the book (which was quite good). Not sure I think much of this remake idea.

Just got to watch this last weekend on Netflix instant view. Was good (graphics were a bit dated) and stuck to the book pretty well. I enjoyed it and would recommend watching the old one if the opportunity arises.
