The BBC have used OCR technology on every copy of the UK Radio Times magazine from 1923 to 2009.

Tolkien appears a lot, and possibly some of these recordings were not known about until this resource became available.

There seem to be a lot more adaptions of The Hobbit for the radio than I was aware of

The BBC also have another page that shows the same results from 2009 to today, but this does not seem to work, which is a shame

Incidentally, here's the problem with eBay (& collecting Tolkien in 2014 generally):

Worldwide "hobbit" search: 73,411 hits.
Of this, only 7,249 (<10%) are books!
Over 40% of the items are classified under "Clothes, Shoes & Accessories"!

And how do you know it wasn't her Grannie who bought it for £1, Trotter?!

They bought it for a £1, as in the photos, so paying £195 to buy it should be no problem
