I have just finished watching the online film "Born of Hope"

http://bornofhope.com/Watch.html

Like the "Lord of the Rings" films, I was surprised that the producers did not stick entirely to the 5 lines of text that Tolkien wrote about Aragorn's father and mother, but as the film is 1 hour and 10 minutes long that would be difficult.

I enjoyed watching it and it is free to watch

I have been watching a UK BBC TV programme comedy called "Bellamy's People" in which one of the characters is shown in front of a huge bookcase with probably 2-300 books on it.

More than Deagol's bookcases on http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/collect ... llectors/tolkienbooks.htm

This is the 4th Episode and this character has probably been on screen for about 6 minutes in the other three episodes, but something looked familiar, I was sure I had seen one of the books before.
