Wyrd Sisters was televised in the late 80s/early 90s (I think) and it was on Sunday afternoons as well - that bit I am certain of. Did it have the witches in it jonesh? I'm pretty sure that was on Channel 4 too - or ITV anyway as there were commercials

Soul Music and Wyrd Sisters were not broadcast until April 1997. We talked about it way back in Issue 1of Discworld Monthly

Well that would explain why I didn't see them when they were on TV.

In that case, I can't imagine what it is that jonesh saw all that time ago. :?

I could have sworn the animated Wyrd Sisters programming (and it was definitely on a Sunday pm) was earlier than 1997 as I graduated that year and I would have said it was well before that (although I suppose Wyrd Sisters wasn't published until the later 1980's early 90's *shrugs*.

Ah well no doubt the oracle (aka Jason) is bang on and my leetle grey cells are faulty as usual... :lol:
