Calling all muggles! CBC's Passionate Eye has aired A Year in the Life of J.K. Rowling, a revealing documentary exploring a year in the life of Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling. While Rowling is renowned for being camera-shy and private, this documentary presented an intimate look at Rowling's life and creative process as she worked on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the seventh and final book in the Potter series.
The documentary also took a look at where it all began, by visiting Rowling's childhood home and the modest flat where she wrote the first Potter book.

A Year in the Life of J.K Rowling will air again on Sunday, August 21 at 6 p.m. ET on the CBC News Network.
