Back in April, we first told you ITV would be airing another special on the making of a Harry Potter film. Host Ben Shepherd is back again with his popular "Behind the Magic" special on the making of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. This program is set to air Saturday, July 11 7:00pm - 8:00pm on ITV1. Thanks to reader Andrea we now know some of the great new things that will be contained in the program, including: "exclusive clips of Harry’s first kiss with his new girlfriend, Ginny Weasley, Ron Weasley’s sister, and Daniel Radcliffe talks about filming the scenes and how Harry handles going out with his best friend’s sister."

Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint reveal they corpsed repeatedly during a romantic scene between Harry and Ginny Weasley, Ron's sister: Dan: "We must have done it 20 times, because we couldn't stop laughing. Me and Rupert are still pretty terrible at corpsing. I've got a lot better, but Rupert's awful..." Rupert: "It does get annoying. I've ruined so many takes and there's just no reason for it, I can't explain it, it's so annoying. I feel really bad, 'cos the day just goes on and on."

Other tidbits include more as the host looks at Weasley Wheezes shop "which has 40,000 props, took 15 people a year to design, 50 people an entire year to build and the crew and cast spent five days filming in it." We also will see "never-seen-before footage of the moment the Millennium Bridge in London is ‘destroyed’ for the film. The Head of Visual Effects describes how he used computer generated images to show the bridge buckling and twisting before breaking free of the steel ropes holding it in place and collapsing into the Thames.And Behind the Magic premieres exclusive footage of three brand new characters: the professor who disguises himself as an armchair, Greyback the terrifying werewolf and little Tom Riddle, the boy from the orphanage who grew up to be the most evil wizard of all – Lord Voldemort."

Finally we will hear more from Emma Watson on the developing romantic feelings Hermione has for Ron, as well from Dan (Harry) and Rupert (Ron) on Quidditch, with Dan noting:"There's no secret to Quidditch, other than for a man, if you imagine sitting on a bicycle and taking your feet off the peddles, just hanging there and leaning forward, with all the repercussions that has - then you get an idea of what it's like. Balance is difficult and also certain very important organs are crushed"

Anyone who can capture video please send it in! Thanks so much Andrea!

I love these but might have to watch it after the movie – too much will ruin it!

I so want to see this. They showed a special in Australia today but it didn’t show in my area. If anyone can put it on dvd for me that would be awesome.
