I have just listened on catch up to Graham Norton's show from this morning on R2. He did a great interview with J K Rowing about her new book and I was just so pleased to hear her treated with respect and friendliness. Nice to know not everyone at the BBC seems to be against her.
Sorry not much more to say but I just wanted to share as it made me quite happy this morning smile

I listened and thought it was warm and friendly and respectful discussion of terfdom and what shes been through ..possibly at her request...just wonder how GN's twitter feed is doing ..

Graham is a lovely bloke. He has tons of female friends, and he is very well-respected within the industry.

He also isn't stupid, which you would have to be if you thought Rowling was a bigot.

I am going to miss Graham on the radio. It was a lovely interview, they seemed to get on well and she came across as she always has: bright, funny, down to earth.

HerBigChance Sat 14-Nov-20 17:03:33

I'm going to miss Graham on the radio too, I really like him and his show.

It was lovely wasnt it? The toddlers are throwing the toys around on twitter naturally “waaah waaah waah how dare they give her air time”

She also confirmed troubled blood will be filmed 😁

From the comments, does this mean Graham is leaving?

Kit19 Sat 14-Nov-20 17:49:16

Yes he’s leaving in a few weeks

ARoombaOfOnesOwn Sat 14-Nov-20 17:50:40

Oh no! He’ll be missed.

HerBigChance Sat 14-Nov-20 17:51:39

Yes, 19 Dec is his last show.

Graham Norton comes across as an intelligent gentle person. The total opposite of the kind of people who slate JKR.

I listened to it whilst walking the dog through some love scenery and it just made me feel so happy.

I'm sure Graham knows all about the slating JK has had recently and good for him having her on his show.

I'll miss his show a lot.

I haven't listened yet, but I already heard that she said Troubled Blood was getting made and I popped with excitement, so I shall have a listen later.

He was just lovely

PhoebeSnow Sat 14-Nov-20 21:34:14

Why is he leaving ? I love his warmth and wit. His own books are excellent.

PhoebeSnow Sat 14-Nov-20 21:36:12

I had a wee look at The Ickabod today and it’s lovely , the illustrations are very sweet.

Absolute shout out to GN . Without referencing the hate stuff he just showed her warmth and solidarity and support. Good man x

Carriemac Sun 15-Nov-20 14:43:44
