Another BBC programme that contains an interview with Tolkien. This is only viewable in the UK though.

Series looking at the story of the British novel in the 20th century, told by those who know it best - the authors themselves.

The second part marks the end of the Second World War and the beginning of the atomic age, with humanity now having the power of world destruction. What WH Auden coined the Age of Anxiety had begun. The holocaust and the nuclear cloud dominated the sensibility of the period and as political tensions worsened, the mood of anxiety, horror and fear of possible armageddon intensified. A new generation of novelists were on hand to confront and articulate this age - the period that reaffirmed realism was also the period of its dissolution.

Broadcast on:
BBC Four, 9:00pm Monday 23rd August 2010
Duration:
60 minutes
Available until:
9:59pm Monday 6th September 2010

[Side note for Beren ] - I think I have fixed the login issue, you should stay logged in much much longer now. Let me know if you are still having troubles.

Hi Beren,

I have a Rhona Beare - perhaps we can work out a trade. :)

So easy to fill your only want! Then what will you do...
