Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2: Behind the Magic

Last June, with Deathly Hallows Part 2's cinema release imminent, I finally watched the TV making-of about Part 1. Now, another year on, I've finally cleared Part 2's equivalent off my V+ box. Funny how these things work out. (It's also provoked by the fact that Part 2 is coming to Sky Movies soon, so I ought to get my bloody review up -- I only watched it at the start of January!)

Despite being on ITV and presented by Ben Shephard, these do a surprisingly good job of going behind-the-scenes. It's not a thorough, detailed exploration of how the film is made, of course, but in sharing a few interesting facts and figures and capturing the opinions of cast and crew -- particularly valuable (in a "for fans" way, obviously) as the series comes to a close after a decade -- it's nice.
