  BBC gets JK's only OOTP interview
Updated 03 June 2003, 18.13
JK's giving an exclusive interview to the BBC
JK Rowling has given her only TV interview in the run-up to Order Of The Phoenix to the BBC.

The interview was carried out by Newsnight's Jeremy Paxman.

He's someone we're more used to seeing grilling politicians and giving them a hard time.

It will be broadcast in the UK in a special programme on BBC Two on Thursday, 19 June at 7.30pm - two days before OOTP hits the shops.

The pressure

The kids' cover for Order of the Phoenix

JK chats about her new novel, gives Jeremy a taster from the new book, and talks about the inspiration behind the novels.

She also talks about the impact her books have had on children's literature.

Interviewer Jeremy said: "She talks honestly about her fame, her wealth and the time she even considered breaking her arm to avoid the pressures of writing.

Worth the wait

"As well as dropping some clues about what will happen in the Order of the Phoenix, she raises intriguing new possibilities about Harry's longer term future.

"We've been trying for 18 months to get an interview with JK Rowling - I think it was worth the wait."

We think it probably was! Don't forget to tune in.

And don't miss all the amazing OOTP stuff CBBC Newsround will have in the run-up to OOTP's release and afterwards!
