In June, Leaky told you about ITV's plans to produce a show entitled "50 Greatest Harry Potter Moments." Fans were invited to vote for their favorite moments from the first seven films via Facebook.

ITV has now announced that the 2-hour show will air tonight at 8 p.m. GMT on ITV1 in the U.K. It will be narrated by actor Robbie Coltrane (Rubeus Hagrid) and feature contributions from other Harry Potter cast members, J.K. Rowling, and celebrity fans such as singer Will Young.

To celebrate the release of the final instalment in the Harry Potter film saga, this special programme counts down the 50 greatest Harry Potter moments. Robbie Coltrane - aka Hagrid - narrates the countdown and looks back at the events which have defined the story of Harry and his friends. From the very first meeting aboard the Hogwarts Express to the death of the mighty Dumbledore, there are numerous scenes that have made Harry Potter an international favourite. Featuring contributions from Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, JK Rowling, Julie Walters, Ralph Fiennes, director David Yates and many more, as well as chats with celebrity fans including Will Young and Richard Curtis

Great to see Jo is so heavily involved in this show. She describes the trio as being perfect for their roles and says " I love you can probably tell."

Great programme, was a bit weird though, I’m sure I didn’t see Luna in the whole 2 hours!

If you live in the Uk please enjoy it for us. It would be great if the show makes it across the Atlantic!

It was brilliant! Jo was beautiful (as always), the cast gave really great interviews and they picked most of my favourite moments. When they showed Dobby dying I started crying again! Oh, Dobby, I love you <3
I loved that they ended it with Jo’s words from the premiere.

After watching this i can honestly say i’m suffering from post-potter depression. Having to go back to the books to keep going. We really need a Leakycon in the UK.

It was quite an enjoyable programme, but I took part in the voting, and they just didn’t give us enough choice regarding ‘moments’ to vote for. This shows in the final programme – I ask you, only one Snape moment (the death of Dumbledore)? No First Potions Class? No Duelling Club? No ‘Little Walk in the Moonlight’? No Veritaserum Threat? No First Occlumency Class? No ‘Ob-viously’? No Unbreakable Vow? No Giving Draco a – erm – Talking-To? No ‘Vulnera Sanentur’? No Evil Committee Meeting at Malfoy Manor?
@Dumblebridge, You’re right, too. No Luna?
