The children characters in Fantasy Fiction

 

Through the magic of I-Player, I have just caught up with an excellent BBC documentary on how the Children Characters in the Fantasy Fiction we all love, have come about, and how this has changed over the years.

Think Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Lion Witch and Wardrobe, through to Golden Compass and Harry Potter,

It is a full hour proramme, but I thought superb, with comments from many well known writers and critics, including Philip Pullman.
