Television: BBC "Ballet Shoes" with Emma Watson


Recommended Posts

The BBC is doing a movie of Ballet Shoes, with Emma Watson (aka Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter movies! ) as Pauline (the actress one). I'm not sure where it will be shown in the States, but I believe it will be shown in the UK at Christmas or thereabouts. Hopefully there will be a DVD for the rest of us!

Darn, since I'm from Germany, chances are rather small that I'll get my hands on a copy of this hopefully-soon-to-be DVD.

 

But then again, do I like Emma? No. I guess I'd watch the movie anyway. It is about ballet! Ha ha ha!

Haven't heard about it but I am sure I would have seen posters for it.... Will keep my eyes open upon my return to London in Jan 2008.

I think that it is being shown on ITV (well, UK TV anyway) on either Christmas Eve, or Christmas day. Not entirely sure of the details but, will check for you. Lots of my friends dance and play as extras on the programme, but I couldn't as I was still in a cast for my ankle! They were given choreography to dance and tutus from ENB. From their picutres it looks beautiful, the hair, make-up and costumes are very true to the period. Thank god, that the pointe shoes weren't!

I believe this will be shown on BBC1 at 8:30 on 26 Dec. There's LOTS of dance on British tv this holiday - Acosta and Rojo in Romeo and Juliet, Darcey Bussell's farewell, plus two other shows with her, Strictly Bolshoi, Red Shoes, Beatrix Potter, Fred and Ginger..... and that's not even all!

There seems to have been exceptionally good dance every Christmas for the past few years and I am sorry we are stateside this year and missing it. Ah well, we've the Cadbury's Christmas Box and the crackers . . .

And are all these broadcasts on BBC? If so, I can watch them! Could anyone please tell me when exactly these dance programmes will be on? Thank you very much. :cool2:

HI! It's gonna be on BBC1 at 8:30 on boxing day, and its coming out on DVD in January.

P.S. if you like the 1975 film of ballet shoes, go to www.youtube.com and type noel streatfield into the search box- someone has posted the whole film!!!!!!!!!!

I was quite disappointed by the amount of ballet in it. It seemed to be mostly about Pauline, and I seem to remember the books had more dancing in them. I think it focussed too much on Emma Watson, being the best known of the young actresses.

 

But still enjoyable nonetheless.

I typed that in and all I saw is the :39 trailer. ??

Anyhow, I just added the classic one to my queue along with The Dancer from netflix.

I'm dying to see this! Is it going to be released either in the States or in the EU,does anyone know? Also, in fairness, the book actually focuses most on Pauline of all the girls. She was the oldest and is the one to really start her career throughout the book. There is less description of Posy through :) out. Yes, I am a dork-- I've practically memorized the book! :
