His house had a fairly typical 1950's fireplace, can't see a massive amount of interest in this ebay item.

It is also news to me that he started writing The Lord of the Rings in 1933.

A very interesting letter written on Tolkien's birthday in 1969. I love the way that he states in the letter that he now lives by the sea but does not disclose the location, though the postmark may give a bit of a clue

I am also very envious that he sent them five signatures in total.

We saw some of it at the TS AGM. It is 'roughcut' working footage not the high quality colour copy - which may or may not still exist somewhere in the BBC archives.

What we saw consisted of clips where Tolkien phrases his comments in a way that is conversational rather than the sound-bite statements that are needed for broadcast in a documentary - so he would agree with the interviewer and then go on to talk more rather than just making a standalone statement. This is very difficult to edit apparently. Basically the 90 minutes are what was left on the cutting room floor.

The tape belongs to LM but the copyright belongs to the BBC.

You can see his talk on the TS website - but not the Tolkien bits unfortunately due to copyright. LM can explain it much more clearly than I.

There was some talk of showing it at Oxonmoot but no idea if this will prove to be possible - there are permissions issues to address and so on.
