Here is a link to a transcript of that interview with JK Rowling the BBC broadcast earlier this evening.

A very likeable lady. Mind, when it comes to magic, including Wizard School, or sheer writing ability she ain't in the same league as Ursula Leguin, with her Earthsea books. But it's great to see a book getting published being seen as a major event - big signs up on our local all-night supermarket saying "Harry Potter - 12.01 am Saturday".

I reckon it'll be Hagrid for the chop, on the basis that JK Rowling says she got really upset at having to do it.
