In Colorado, this airs on the CW network from 7 PM to 8:30 PM; times may differ in your time zone. This is the first I've heard of the documentary, so I do not know if this is the first airing of the documentary in America. For those who did not get a chance to see it, and want to, here is our opportunity. It originally aired in the UK last year. Below is a trailer....

Here is the blurb from my online TV guide, from my TV provider: "(4/11) It is 20 years since JK Rowling's Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone first cast its spell on readers across the globe. This is a thought-provoking look at the social/cultural underpinnings of the story."

Has anyone seen this and can comment on it? Will anyone, in America, watch it tonight?

I do not know if this is based on this book....

Haven't seen it yet, but as I was previewing my TV options for tonight, I noticed it will be on (8-9:30 here, EST). I'm kind of excited. I'm a big HP fan.

Thanks for confirming the difference in time zones. I have to watch the re-air of Suits and miss half of Seal Team for it, but well worth the opportunity cost.

It's been on a couple of times here. I can't remember much about it, but I do recall it was quite entertaining, if a bit padded.
