For semi-common items like these, my best bet has been to just keep asking eBay sellers the questions you have until you get a reasonable response. Keep a form message saved somewhere and copy/paste in each listing that looks promising, then just delete/move on from any that don't respond or can't give you the info you need. It takes some time to find the exact one you want, but it'll happen. The same is possible with ABEBooks dealers.

I've had no luck getting info from Amazon marketplace sellers - if I see something I really want there I have to order blind and cross my fingers. (I did get my copy of the 1936 Proceeding of the British Academy this way, and cheap! But I have had many wrong printings/etc. too).

So.... what are you looking for?

I have had luck in the past asking here and finding a long time collector willing to part with items occasionally. It never hurts to ask.

The Tolkien Society produced a transcript of the entire recording (available for purchase at the time, and later reproduced and available from Beyond Bree in the USA as well), so it has been heard by a few people outside of the BBC staff at least! I would not be surprised if there is a recording in the TS archives and/or the BBC archives as well as with the Estate. I am pretty certain it has never been commercially available.

I had a suspicion that was the 5 minutes you were talking about (that's what triggered my memory to go digging for the reference). Nigel is really a nice person, glad he was able to help you out!

You may be interested in the Church House Archive recording mentioned in this post...

http://www.tolkienguide.com/modules/n ... ost_id=4042#forumpost4042

Unfortunately only ten copies were made available.

Its been a while since I listened to it, so I don't recall how much material made it onto the recording (not everything).
