The BBC is to launch a reality series which will follow a group of children learning magic at a Harry Potter-style boarding school.
Barney Harwood will present the BBC children's show
The Sorcerer's Apprentice, which will air later this year, will show the children learning card tricks, Latin spells and illusions.
Each week, they will perform for "magic mentors" who will judge their performances and decide who must leave.
BBC executive Anne Gilchrist thinks the show will "inspire and amaze".
Barney Harwood, who currently presents Totally Doctor Who, will front the series as the children progress.
The children watching at home will also get to learn magic tricks, in an accompanying morning series - which is yet to be named.
The magic mentors will give away their secrets and perform step-by-step guides, so children can learn and perform the tricks themselves.
