~ TV Series + Movie ~
When I was about ten (I think) the Babysitters Club TV series was shown on Channel Four at about 7:30 on Sunday mornings for a little while, but stopped after quite a short time. After that it was repeated during the Christmas holidays (still on Channel Four and often at 6:00 in the morning...agh!) for a couple of years. I don't know if they showed the whole series (because I don't know how many episodes there are), but I'll find some episode synopses somewhere and try and find out how many I saw. Off the top of my head I remember seeing:
Were there two seasons of the TV series? I
seem to remember seeing at
least one episode where Kristy had a brace (well, the actress anyway) and the
phone was a different colour (grey instead of red(?)) - maybe the one
in question was a pilot or something.
The BSC movie, on the other hand, *was* released in the UK, but I think it was released straight to video (I may be wrong, but I'm sure I never saw it advertised at any cinemas). There wasn't much promotion - the only way I knew there was actually a film was because the film tie-in books were released here. I thought I'd never see it, but then while shopping I happened to find the video on sale (which my mum bought me right there and then for Christmas, even though it was only September). The video cover is like the books, except it says 'THE MOVIE' on the top window surround and the window-pane is the picture featured on the soundtrack cover.
