UK Ringers are going to have a feast of TV docos about Tolkien. This came in today thanks to the folks at the South Bank Show:

“Just a quick word that The South Bank Show in the UK is producing a Tolkien special due to be broadcast on ITV1 in the UK on December 16 (three days before the world premiere of the movie of The Lord of the Rings in Leicester Square). We have already filmed a long, in-depth interview with Peter Jackson before he returned to New Zealand, and one with Ted Nasmith at the opening of his exhibition here in London last week. We will hopefully have interviews with cast members, and behind-the-scenes footage that Mr Jackson has kindly promised us.”
