It's a full-length animated film about a 5th-century Chinese girl who dresses as a boy and goes off the war. It's won plaudits all round - not least from our own critics! (see 145/463) And next week a class of British schoolchildren will meet up with a class of Beijing children - on the Net. ——————————————————————————————————1/5—— by Serena Hennessy WIN A HOME CINEMA TV p465 Teletext today Guide Keyboard TV Plus

Hampstead Royal School form mistress Sorella le Var says: "This is an adventure for both us and the pupils. "The children will compare notes on their assigments and views of Chinese and British ways of life. But beyond that, we don't know what to expect.
