Jeanette Winterson writes children's drama for BBC

From The Guardian:

Jeanette Winterson has written a one-off children's thriller for the BBC, nearly 20 years after her award-winning novel Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit was adapted for TV.

Una Stubbs will star in Ingenious, the story of 11-year-old Sally, who lives on a farm with her grandmother and friends. The children find a mysterious old glass bottle which leads them on a magical adventure. As the nearby Jodrell Bank telescope picks up curious signs, the children and a local author suspect a dragon could be at large. The drama will be shown on BBC1 later in the year.
