"Harry Potter" reality TV show aimed at kids

The BBC has announced The Sorcerer's Apprentice, to air later in 2007, in which children in a boarding school will discover card skills, illusions and "spells" (in Latin). The show will be presented by Barney Harwood (him off Totally Doctor Who) and mentors will judge their performances and choose who has to leave. Sounds bonkers to us, but possibly more fun and informative than Big Brother, with at least the chance to learn a few tricks.
