(himself): I think what I liked from the first about Harry Potter was that mix of - um - I won't say fantasy, because I think of it as a dirty word, and fantasy doesn't really work unless it's grounded in reality, and it's the reality that appealed to me in a sense.

Insightful for the Potter fans.

I had forgotten when was this aired on the local television here. But I know it has been some time. Had I knew it earlier of an entry on this site, I would had updated this beforehand.

For the Harry Potter fans like me, many of us may have wondered along the way as we read the adventures of Harry and his on earth did JK Rowling get all the stuff in the books? What are her inspirations?

All these and more are being explained in this documentary where the famous author of the bestselling series let the outside world have a peek into her own world. Given it's understandable that she is a very private person, this is really very insightful and informative especially for the fans. Not only learning about JK's inspirations to the books, there's even an insight to her life, pre-Harry Potter fame.

It's really recommended, especially if you are a Harry Potter fan yourself.
