Fascinating and at times very sad. A ‘must see’ for all fans.

It’s still recorded on my Sky+ box and I aim not to delete it. How wonderful, Louis Volant sounds like someone from Harry Potter. A Gryffindor for sure. Also so inspiring that Salome held so many traits with Jo. She should be so proud of her heritage

Thanks Leaky I didn`t know about it!
Have you seen J.K.Rowling – A Year In The Life? It`s fascinating.
