Look at the third signature from the bottom in Beren's article.

The autograph which started it all... it was the first fake signature that appeared on a website claiming to be a true signature. This one has been seen many, many times reproduced (especially on cut cards)

Have a look at this auction

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/LORD-RINGS-Tolk ... t=Antiquarian_Collectible

The pictures show the terrible neglect that these books have gone through, pretty much everything that could be wrong is wrong in these sorry examples. How do you arrive at USD $3000 for this set

and they have picked an appalling and highly unreadable font for the listing

Khamul I did not have time to watch it before I posted, but I have now. It's Tolkien in Oxford without the student quotes and a lot of Tolkien. Rayner Unwin was so right in his comments on posterity

Watch the original Tolkien in Oxford instead, I'd love to know why at the end of the Tolkien in Oxford TV programme they take off in a helicopter and fly around Oxford for about three minutes, when

Posterity is also the poorer for the loss of a large quantity of film that was discarded at the cutting-room stage and has subsequently disappeared.

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
