Ben-Hur mini-series premieres this Sunday!

Remember that new version of Ben-Hur that was being produced as a four-hour mini-series? I last mentioned it here almost a year ago, but since then I hadn’t heard much about it. Now, however, Matt Page and a few of his readers have discovered that the CBC is showing the first part of the mini-series this Sunday at 8:00pm (or 8:30pm in Newfoundland). As far as Matt can tell, the mini-series hasn’t been shown or scheduled in any other country (though a trailer that was apparently shown on Spanish TV can still be seen here), so the Canadian broadcast could be a world premiere.
