There are six 'Inklings Archives' in total. The TS releases (of which there are only two; covering only Tolkien) are essentially the same except they are stand alone releases (there is no suggestion of there being six); also simply called 'Church House Archives' (see TSTrading catalogue).

Facets of Tolkien (Inklings Archive #2; same title) is identical in both formats. Tolkien & the Inklings by TS incorporates Carpenter & Shippey from two seperate 'Inklings Archives' (#3 & #4); it also includes a recording of Barbara Strachey (Author of Journeys of Frodo...) not included in any of the six 'Inklings Archives'.

'Inklings Archives' #1, #5 & #6 contain no specific Tolkien related material (#2 is exclusively Tolkien; #3 & #4 contain some Tolkien material as mentioned above).

Additionally, the 'Inklings Archives' are limited in number (TS releases are not). Contact Nigel Sustins for more details; & for another very interesting item...

[The following information has been provided by Nigel Sustins]

THE INKLINGS ARCHIVES

A series of audio CDs has been produced of talks given at Church House, Westminster relating to the group of writers who formed the ‘Inklings’: C S Lewis, J R R Tolkien, Charles Williams, and other writers who influenced them, including George MacDonald. The recordings were made by Nigel Sustins, then Manager of Church House Bookshop. Each CD is 70-75 minutes in length.

Archive 2. ‘Facets of Tolkien’ contains talks given on 16th September 1977, to mark the publication of ‘The Silmarillion’.
[Track 1] Priscilla Tolkien, the Professor’s daughter;
[Track 2] Humphrey Carpenter,Tolkien’s biographer.
The other two recordings on this CD are from a meeting on 3rd October 1980, organised to celebrate the publication of ‘Unfinished Tales’.
[Track 3] Rayner Unwin, Tolkien’s publisher, discussing future plans to issue new Tolkien material;
[Track 4] Rayner Unwin answering questions.

The Inklings Archives are produced in a limited edition of 100 sets. ‘Facets of Tolkien’ is authenticated by a photograph of the signatures in a copy of ‘The Silmarillion’ (Priscilla Tolkien, Humphrey Carpenter, Rayner Unwin, two of Tolkien’s granddaughters and Pauline Baynes, the artist, all of whom were present at the event), each photograph bearing the number of the copy and initialled by Nigel Sustins. The recordings were made on tape (up to 30 years old) but have been converted to digital format and transferred to CD, and any deficiency is more than made up for by the unique and historic nature of the material. To protect any copyright the recordings should be used only for educational or private purposes, and must not be copied, played in public or re-sold.

Please note: the Tolkien Society in Britain is selling other versions of the Tolkien material, but not in limited editions.

Each CD costs GBP 15.00, post free worldwide (payment from outside the UK must be made by PayPal). Also available on Abebooks.com and Amazon UK (the latter make a postage charge).

For further information contact: Nigel Sustins, Rose Cottage, Wentnor, Bishops Castle, Shropshire, SY9 5EE, UK, Tel. 01588 650590; email n.sustins@tiscali.co.uk

I appear to have the Visual Corp. version.

The first time I read Hammond's comments as wasn't quite sure what version (on TV) he was describing. Earlier (in the quote) he describes the US TV version as 1 hour long (or implies that it is). The UK version is clearly more than 15 minutes longer (although I suppose the US TV version may have only run to 45 minutes with commercials). Either way he doesn't ever appear to be talking about the 110 minutes version.

[For information] The Tolkien Teaching Pack that Deagol sites was from 1995; but the Visual Corp. version (from 'The Tolkien Partnership') was quite a bit earlier (1992; MR was forthcoming, and spelt wrong in the credits!)

I think I bought mine on Amazon...
