A documentary entitled “#HarryPotter A History of Magic” was aired on BBC 2 in the U.K. in 2017. The documentary was created in connection with the 20th anniversary of the release of the first book (published in the U.K. in 1997), as well as the opening of an exhibit of the same name in the British Museum.
For those who haven’t seen the documentary, it can be watched in its entirety (with a lot of randomly inserted ads) on the DailyMotion website:
The documentary includes J.K. Rowling and several actors who appeared in the Harry Potter movies:
- Warwick Davis
- Evanna Lynch
- Miriam Margolyes
- David Thewlis
- Mark Williams
The documentary is also narrated by Imelda Staunton.
Copies of documentary have been released on DVD, but they are only Region 2, meaning that they won’t play on typical blu-ray or DVD players sold in the United States. You would need a blu-ray or DVD player capable fo playing Region 2 DVD’s in order to watch it. Hence, we didn’t include any links of where to purchase the Region 2 DVD, but anyone interested can google it.
