This is obviously the same item we heard (and reported about) a few months ago, under a different name. Our thanks to reader Tory Danna, who first heard about this particular title on the release a couple of weeks ago, from a BBCAmerica service agent. We would have gotten this news to our readers sooner, but until today's announcement, nobody at BBC would admit that this title existed! Stay tuned, and if we find out anything more, we'll bring it to you just in "time"!
