I didn't get the Professor or the A&U employee. I hadn't thought of the smith by the time my wife said the answer.

I have been watching a UK BBC TV programme comedy called "Bellamy's People" in which one of the characters is shown in front of a huge bookcase with probably 2-300 books on it.

More than Deagol's bookcases on http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/collect ... llectors/tolkienbooks.htm

This is the 4th Episode and this character has probably been on screen for about 6 minutes in the other three episodes, but something looked familiar, I was sure I had seen one of the books before.
