Dr Stuart Lee states in his 3rd June 2015 talk, that additional footage of Tolkien has been found from what was recorded in the 1968 Tolkien in Oxford BBC TV program (http://www.bbc.co.uk/archive/writers/12237.shtml), an additional 1 hour 30 minutes.

Any suggestions on how we can get to view this footage, the BBC will own the rights to the material?

I am making the assumption that the additional material is from Leslie Megahey, the producer of the BBC 1968 Tolkien in Oxford program, but may be wrong.

The "Printed in China" statement undoubtedly indicates that it is a reprint, (irrespective of the lack of red foil on the book cover -- that is interesting though, as I didn't realise they deleted the red foil when they reprinted).

To answer Tapuvae's question, the first printing of the unsigned version also has the red/gold foil. There is no difference whatsoever (other than the added signature and different "information sheet") between the two versions of the first printing. They are the same book, printed at the same time.

It is frustrating that HarperCollins doesn't care about correct number-lines on the deluxe reprints. Fortunately the Chinese printing makes them fairly easy to detect.

And of course the booksellers are using the stock footage showing the red and gold. But nothing is worse than roxy media using the super deluxe image to sell the deluxe.

Good eyes, I can confirm mine is gold only and I supplied the picture above with the "Printed and bound in China." The signed version with different ISBN has the red. So the question is whether the first printing of the unsigned also has the red and gold.

I have received from a friend collector some photos of this edition. The book reports that it's a first edition, but if you look carefully the logo on the book, this is different: only yellow instead that red and yellow.

Probably it's a reprint? What do you think?
