Beren has posted a transcript of an interview with Tolkien on his web site http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/press/8 ... en_1971_BBC_Interview.php and mentioned finding these recordings by looking on the Internet.

A good place to start is the New York Times which has quite a lot of Tolkien material including original book reviews, his obituary and a video interview with Raynor Unwin. Be aware that not all the links still work (sadly the Tolkien Audio link does not work, but I think from memory it is the Interview above) but I recommend you take a look.

I think it would make a great commercial DVD and it would sell very well over the next couple of years because of the Hobbit films.

I asked David Brawns from Harper Collins last year if they would consider releasing this on DVD and he said that HC would consider it.

Beren, with your contacts at HC could you give him a gentle reminder.

Yet another one, As far as I can see this is a fake.
Does anyone think it is real?

All these years I have lived under the obviously wrong impression that the sequel to the Hobbit was the Lord of The Rings.

I agree with Deagol, words fail me

The most unusual item that I have is my copy of the standard UK Children of Hurin, which I got from Foyles in London a week before the official release of the book.

Foyles must have had a about 30 copies of the book in the store which had been pulled from the shelves after HarperCollins found out they were selling them early. They were actually still in the store but had been turned around so you could not see the covers. I bought a copy took it outside and had a look at it, the first section of the book is bound upside down. I went back into the store and it looks like all the rest were the same.

I think that these books would have been pulped before the release 1 week later, so I suspect that my copy may be unique.
