In this one-hour special we go in search of the real world of Harry Potter, analysing the hard scientific basis behind this paranormal adventure, and unravelling the real-life sources and ancient myths which have helped make Harry Potter a modern obsession.

From Nicolas Flamel’s home in Paris, to the Chemistry labs of modern alchemists, and the Gaelic Shinty fields of Ireland, to the mythical world of ancient Greece, we trace the roots of alchemy, magic, herbal medicine and the social phenomenon of witchcraft. In doing so we tell a tale that seems even less believable than Harry Potter, but for one fact – this story is real.
