From the Tolkien Society website

Tolkien in Lovewill be broadcast on Friday 3rd August, 11.00-11.30, telling the story of how J. R. R. Tolkien met and fell in love with Edith Bratt in Edgbaston, Birmingham. More information here.

John Garth is one of the people interviewed.

The Hobbit, The Musicalwill be broadcast on Saturday 4th August, 10.30-11.00. In December 1967 choristers at New College School, Oxford, performed an adaptation of The Hobbit. Some former choristers talk about their memories of taking part, with the songs performed by the present New College Chamber Choir. More information here.

Radio programs are available worldwide from the BBC, so I will update with the listen again links when they are made available.

He has taken out the old nonsense about how some dealers describe books as rare, when they are not, pots and black kettles come to mind.

The same seller is also selling a very rare 1971 Hobbit, who knew these were so rare, for $399 with no dust-jacket.

The very rare

The Hobbit Tolkien George Allen and Unwin 1965 1st Edition 15th Impression

snap it up for $2999

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HOBBIT-2nd- ... tible&hash=item4ab6ee5d04

The title does admit it is a 2nd edition and has some tape on the dust-jacket.

This could be a great investment as the movie of the Hobbit is about to be released later this year, and prices of the Lord Of The Rings went up after the movies relating to those three volumes. or in this case a very poor one.
