Fantasy fans in the UK take note: tonight on BBC4 at 9 pm the first episode of The Worlds of Fantasy will be shown. It's a TV series about fantasy literature, and throughout the series we'll see plenty of interviews with authors, including Joe Abercrombie.
Tonight's episode allegedly looks at the idea of the child hero, while the next focuses on worldbuilding. The whole thing is pretty exciting to be honest, as fantasy gets a pretty bad press most of the time in the media (that's if it is mentioned at all). It'll therefore be great to see the genre getting some national TV coverage.
