HARRY POT­TER: A HIS­TORY OF MAGIC

SFX - - Reviews -

re­leased OUT NOW! 2017 | e | dVd

While Pot­ter fans may be dis­ap­pointed there’s not more about the books and films, this BBC doc puts a new spin on the series by delv­ing into the his­tor­i­cal fig­ures and folk­lore that in­spired JK Rowl­ing – via the Bri­tish Li­brary’s ex­hi­bi­tion.

Some links with the books feel ten­u­ous, but Rowl­ing is a chatty, in­for­ma­tive in­ter­vie­wee, while the pres­ence of Pot­ter stars adds a hint of glam­our.

Ex­tras None. Richard Ed­wards
