  Boffins put Buffy under the microscope
Updated 19 October 2002, 12.31

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is so popular with CBBC Newsround Online fans that we had to give you a special messageboard just for the show.

And now the success of the programme is going under the microscope at a university in England.

Loads of top thinkers are going to a big conference over the weekend and will try to work out why the show is so popular.

They will also be looking at the spin-off show Angel as they try and find out what fascinates people so much about TV shows all about blood and magic.

The conference at the University of East Anglia in Norwich (UEA) is called Blood, Text and Fears, and will hear from experts on subjects like film, drama, education, law and religion.

There also comparing the TV hits to other famous literature like Shakespeare, philosophy and music.

The sixth series of Buffy the Vampire Slayer starts on BBC2 on 31 October - Halloween!
