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.

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.
