A new scene from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was just broadcast today on CBBC Blue Peter program where James and Oliver Phelps were the guests. Reader Tony writes of what was shown:

Just seen Blue Peter where they showed a brief clip of Ron, Hermione, and Harry in the Weasley joke shop. It showed Hermione furtively putting a product back, and then Ron following the twins up the stairs with a product asking how much it was, the twins answered 5 galleons, and Ron quite peeved said I'm your brother and they looked at each other and turned to Ron and answered "10 galleons". The shop was full of kids and products, it was off-the-wall to look at.
The twins built a mat that shot water up from it if you stood on it and got water sprayed at one of them ... They weren't bothered though. They said they played practical jokes mainly on the crew not really on Dan or the lead cast etc

UPDATE: Reader Helen owled with a bit more detail:

First you see Hermione browsing at something (she looks slightly concerned) which is producing a few pink bubbles.
In the background you can see some Pygmy Puffs!

Cut to Ron following twins up the stairs. (Everything in the shop is moving and well... magical. Duh)

He picks something up.
Ron - How much is this?
Twins - 5 galleons
Ron - How much for me?
Twins - 5 galleons
Ron - I'm your brother
Twins - 10 galleons

The twins continue up the stairs. Ron looks back towards Harry and Hermione who are at the bottom of the stairs.

The rest is footage we have seen before.
Random voice over - "They can tear them apart"

If anyone has video of this, please send it to
Thanks so much Tony!

I just watched this on cbbc, the clip was only about 10 secs but it got me so excited then they showed an assortment of short trailer clips. I so wanna make that mat though. Felt bad for the lads though, they pretty much did nothing. Said they played a few tricks on members of the crew.
Got so excited at that tiny clip, I cant WAIT for HBP.

Guess That Book

"An Unbreakable Vow?" said Ron, looking stunned. "Nah, he can't have... Are you sure?"[br]"Yes, I'm sure," said Harry. "Why what does it mean?"[br]"Well, you can't break an Unbreakable Vow..."[br]"I'd worked that much out for myself, funnily enough."
