In case you missed our reminder post yesterday, tonight will see the J.K. Rowling: A Year in the Life documentary broadcast on ABC at 8:00pm (Eastern). As noted by the NY Daily News, this airing of the 2007 documentary " which was filmed by James Runcie, inserts voiceovers by Elizabeth Vargas doesn't update the narrative, however, or tie it to the new movie, so it often plays more like a slice of recent pop-culture history than a news special."

“inserts voiceovers by Elizabeth Vargas”

Ugh. I’m glad I still have a copy of the documentary from when it aired in Britain. It might just be me being pessimistic, but the way the film was shot doesn’t exactly lend itself to added voiceover and I’m afraid Elizabeth Vargas’ comments might ruin the flow of the movie…
