We recentlyopens in new window told you that Harry Potter author JK Rowling and British narrator Stephen Fry would be conducting an interview for UK radio station BBC4's Living with Harry Potter, discussing all things Potter. Now the print edition of the Radio Timesopens in new window has some excerpts from the program:

Fry: Is it really true that you've got it [the end of the story] all planned out?

Rowling: Yes, I do know what's going to happen in the end. And occasionally I get cold shivers when someone guesses at something that's very close, and then I panic and I think "Oh, is it very obvious?" and then someone says something that's so off the wall that I think "No, it's clearly not that obvious!"

So much that happens in [book] six relates to what happens in [book] seven. In six, although there is an ending that could be seen as definitive in one sense, you very strongly feel the plot is not over this time and it will continue. It's an odd feeling, for the first time I'm very aware that I'm finishing.

You can read the rest of the excerpts hereopens in new window.

The program will air on December 10th at 9 am & repeat on December 24th at 5 pm.
